May 2nd -
As Aotearoa heads into the cooler months, our friends in the Northern Hemisphere are gearing up for summer, and, as all film fanatics know, that means Festival de Cannes is just around the corner!..
Our Paris-based Senior Programmer Sandra Reid will be heading to Cannes in search of the best films for NZIFF 2022, with our Wellington-based Head of Programming Michael McDonnell attending virtually. We can’t wait to see the fruits of their labour as we continue to finalise our 2022 programme. Speaking of the 2022 programme, we are getting VERY close to announcing our first line-up of films.

NZIFF at Cannes Marché du Film
NZIFF will also be presenting film project The Cage at Cannes Marché du Film’s prestigious Fantastic 7 finance market. Fantastic 7 showcases seven upcoming projects from the global genre industry, presented by seven different film festivals, to an international film industry network during the Cannes Film Festival, enabling its participating filmmakers to pitch to distributors, investors, and production representatives. Representing The Cage at the market will be its Producer, Jared Connon.
The Cage is based on Brian Keene’s seminal horror novel and centres on hostages being held captive in a home electronics store who must escape from a fanatic who intends to use them as human sacrifices to summon an evil interstellar deity. The film will be directed by Paul Campion (The Devil’s Rock).
Fantastic 7 will take place on Sunday, 22 May. We wish Jared and The Cage team all the best!
