The Wairoa Film Festival takes 17 films from this year’s short film programme to Hastings for the weekend.
Wairoa festival director Leo Koziol is presenting the programme as part of Hawke’s Bay’s Takitimu Festival.
Shuffling around the shorts from the programmes presented at Wairoa, the Takitimu programme offers four selections, Mana Wahine (women film makers); Rangatahi (teenage); Tamariki (children) and a Takitimu section which will feature films starring Hawke’s Bay actors or ones made in the Bay.
