After its triumphant premiere opening this year’s NZIFF, The Dark Horse opens on Thursday. Flicks will tell you where and when it’s screening.
The Dark Horse trailer
Premiering this week in the NZIFF are several local titles – all of which have received at least some NZFC support – including Max Currie’s Everything We Loved (tonight), Jonathan King’s Realiti, Alister Barry’s Hot Air and Gerard Smyth’s Aunty and the Star People.

Your tax dollars are at work not only through the NZFC but also NZ On Air, this week delivering plenty of first-run fare from MTS’ Media Take, Pop-Up Workshop’s The Moe Show for the rug rats and Friday night fun for the young at heart on TV3. In and amongst the new fare are some repeats well worth a look – not least of which is Desert Road drama Harry.
Not Harry but Jeremy, on The Moe Show
Not called a trailer but at 1.20 this Sides featurette How to Make an Impression at an Audition fits the bill.
After becoming the second director to part ways with the producers of 2012 doco feature Beautiful Machine Sam Peacocke retained a good relationship with the film’s subjects Shihad. Think You’re So Free is from the upcoming album FVEY, releasing 14 August.
