What is MovieFest?

The aim of MovieFest is to encourage the movie makers of New Zealand and to promote and showcase the talent New Zealand has to offer. We aim to stimulate the use of digital video editing tools and to foster the use of computers for digital video editing. We screen the entrants’ work nationwide in an effort to encourage and inspire moviemakers and to give them the feedback from their peers and the general public, as well as from our professional judges. We aim to promote excellence in artistic expression by rewarding creativity, technical achievement and innovation.

By focusing the competition towards Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Hobbyists, we try to encourage the development of NZ movie making talent by providing resources and facilitating help and advice from professionals experienced in their field. We're all about assisting in the development of New Zealand's creative movie-makers and exposing them to the nation at large. If you're a seasoned Movie-maker, then we'd encourage you to 'give back' and get involved - either by entering yourself - or by helping the team, pop over to the Discussions email List.


Moviefest is accepting registrations and will retain its now well known format and entry categories of Primary schools, Secondary schools and Amateurs/Hobbyists.

A panel of very experienced filmmakers has been assembled for the judging panel and the new ROXY Cinema in Wellington's movie suburb, Miramar, will be the home of this years Public Screenings and Awards Ceremony.

Date for registrations has been extended to 14th August 2011 due to later school holidays. The MovieFest Topic is a documentary about "The Team".
