The NZIFF has put an end to the World Cinema Showcase after 14 years, citing commercial realities and introducing a programme of NZIFF Autumn Events in its place. The new programme will run in Auckland and Wellington, during April and May.
Four films are announced to kick off the programme on the weekend of 20-21 April: digital restorations of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Guys and Dolls; Norwegian Oscar nominee Kon-Tiki from Espen Sandberg & Joachim Ronning; and the Ant Timpson-produced ABCs of Death in its premiere NZ screenings.
With the joys of digital, the NZIFF is also presenting Guys and Dolls and Lawrence of Arabia at the Embassy in Wellington the same weekend.
More events will run in Auckland at the Academy and Rialto, and in Wellington at the Paramount, with the NZIFF promising retrospectives, documentaries and premieres.
