KIWI FILM NIGHT: Taika Waititi

The proposed third screening on 6 June in the spring series of KIWI FILM NIGHTS 2018 has been postponed until mid-July. KIWI FILM FEST has been negotiating with the Executive Producer of Taika Waititi’s new film, JOJO RABBIT, to arrange for Taika to do a Q & A after the screening of one of his films. He is currently shooting JOJO RABBIT in the Czech Republic. However, Taika Waititi was not able to make the 6 June date.

As it is such a special event to have a New Zealand director actually shooting a film in the Czech Republic, it is too good an opportunity to miss. Taika Waititi should be available some time after 10 July to come and do a Q & A after the screening of one of his earlier films, either HUNT FOR THE WILDER PEOPLE (2016) or BOY (2010). While both films have been screened in Prague in 2016 and 2013 respectively, the director Taika Waititi, has not been present at the screenings so this makes it a unique and special event. Also, his films are well worth a second visit.


We are currently looking for sponsors to support this event. The costs are approx.12 000 CZK. This covers the cost of screening rights, shipping of the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) and re-use of subtitles plus subtitle operation. If you are able to help with sponsorship of 1000 CZK or more, please get in touch with Anežka Novák or James Turnbull

Thank you to all those CANZA members and their friends who have supported the two film screenings – PORK PIE on 4 April and the MAORI BATTALION films on 2 May.

A big thank you to the New Zealand Embassy Berlin, David Chirnside and Hotel Jalta Prague for making the two film screenings possible with their sponsorship.
