Film Festival

Wairarapa Film Festival is a celebration of local film and filmmakers, with a programme for Masterton, Carterton and Martinborough during 2021 that includes short and feature films, workshops, exhibitions and guest appearances.

Film directors will be at selected screenings to talk about the creative aspects of filmmaking, and special guests will speak about the cultural, historical and aesthetic signifiance of films.

Martinborough Programme
At Circus Cinema from 27-31 October with tickets on sale in October 2021 from Circus Cinema. See the full programme here. 

Opening night of the Martinborough part of Wairarapa Film Festival is a not-to-be missed screening of sci-fi action adventure comedy film This Giant Papier Mache Boulder is Actually Really Heavy, which was partially shot on location along the South Wairarapa Coastline. This is preceded by two short music videos directed by Mumu Moore, including L.A.B.'s In The Air, which captures the breathtaking vistas of Tora Beach. Meet Wellington-based filmmaker, Mumu Moore, at the repeat matinee screening on Thursday 28th October at 3:15PM. Come along and listen to Mumu in conversation with Festival Director, Jane Ross, as they discuss the joys of filmming on location in Wairarapa. Learn more here.
