The fourth edition of the New Zealand Asia Pacific Film Festival will play Auckland’s Sky City later this month.
New Zealand and Fiji-shot Indian film Feeling Lucky, from the team behind 2014’s Urban Turban, will have its world premiere at the festival.
Craig Newland’s 3 Mile Limit is the NZ rep in the programme with Yang Chao’s equally water-themed Chinese drama Crosscurrent (pictured, top), for which Taiwanese cinematographer Mark Lee Ping Bin picked up an award at this year’s Berlinale.
Also playing the festival are Yoshihiro Nakamura’s Japanese comedy Tono, Risoku de Gozaru (The Magnificent Nine), Hun Jang’s Korean War drama The Front Line (Korea), 3 Mile Limit (New Zealand).
The festival isn’t all about film, with cultural performances accompanying a number of the screenings.
The New Zealand Asia Pacific Film Festival runs 29 – 31 October at Sky City, Auckland, co-hosted by the New Zealand Asian Trust, New Zealand Māori Tourism. The festival is supported by Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Foundation North and the New Zealand Film Commission.
