A collection of Māori and Pasifika short films curated by Leo Koziol (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Rakaipaaka), Director of the Wairoa Māori Film Festival, with guest curator Craig Fasi (Niue), Director of the Pollywood Film Festival. This year's expression of 'Ngā Whanaunga', which means relatedness and connectedness between peoples, is once again realised with films from Aotearoa and the Pacific - stunning works made by big screen storytellers at the cutting edge.
