Topic: Matariki Film Awards (2016)
The Matariki Film Challenge 2016 was the first of its kind in Tauranga Moana, focusing on local stories with a Matariki theme. The Matariki Film Awards were held from 6pm on Friday 29 July 2016 in H1110 Theatre (H Block) at the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic, 70 Windermere Drive, Poike. Photos: Daniel Petersen.
Our challenge was created in order to involve all kura in the process of creating a film. This included scriptwriting, storyboarding, filming, acting, directing, producing, editing and everything in between.
Many thanks go to Mike Jonathan of Haka Boy Films who led the project, and mentor and international artist Tiki Taane.
Our rangatahi also couldn’t have taken part without the backing of their educators and parents. Thank you for your support of our upcoming film makers, actors, producers and directors.
The kai was prepared by the Rangataua 7 and the entertainment was by DJ Ayesha Kee. MC was Tihini Grant.
