SUNDAY 21 OCTOBER – 5.30PM (R13)
Show Me Shorts is Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. We are a competitive Academy Awards-accredited festival that screens in cinemas nationwide each Spring.
The festival is set up as a charitable trust (not-for-profit/NGO), and administered by a Trust Board. Although most of the team are volunteers, we have a group of experienced Board members backing up two high-achieving staff and a large number of enthusiastic volunteers. Everyone involved is passionate about short films, story telling, the arts and culture in general.
Our mission: to create and cultivate the infrastructure required to achieve the widest possible appreciation of short films in New Zealand, and New Zealand short films internationally.
Our vision: a future where the important role of short films in New Zealand culture is widely acknowledged and celebrated.
To achieve this vision we work to connect New Zealanders with the best short films from here and around the world; celebrate excellence in short film making; and foster the New Zealand short film community.
