Māoriland is committed to creating a safe environment for all our kaimahi and visitors. 

The values and functions of Māoriland are derived from cornerstone principles of celebration, unity, being alert, and respecting the mana of every person and taonga in our whare. 

We ask that manuwhiri and visitors alike respect the mana of all those you encounter.  

Here's what you can expect from us:

All kaimahi interacting with the public at ticket counters and at venues will be vaccinated and will be wearing masks. We will be testing regularly. This is our duty of care to ensure that the vulnerable in our audience feel safe.

We will have hand sanitiser available at all venues and wherever refreshments are served. We practice good hygiene including washing our hands and cleaning high-use surfaces. 

So that we can safely welcome you into all MFF venues, we ask the following; 

  • Please wear a mask at screenings.
  • If you have any symptoms of cold/flu or COVID-19 or have been asked to self-isolate please stay home. 
  • Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) will be freely available at all venues.
