Opening Night Screening 
 
World Premiere - The Reprocity Project
Wednesday 20 March 2023 | 8:00 PM
Ngā Purapura

Facing a climate crisis, Reciprocity Project embraces Indigenous value systems that have bolstered communities since the dawn of humanity. To heal, we must recognize that we are in relationship with Earth, a place that was in balance until the Industrial Age. The second season of this project invites learning from time-honored and current ways of being across seven Indigenous communities, including the mountainous Tayal homelands of Taiwan, the nightless nights and deep snows of Sámi Nation in Finland, and the forested Limba homelands in Sierra Leone. The Season Two storytellers and community partners are creating projects in response to a question: “What does a return to land, language, practices, and reciprocal relationships mean to you and your community?” 
  • Enchukunoto (The Return) dir. Laissa Malih (IL-Laikipiak Maasai)
  • Ma ŋaye ka Masaala a se ka Wɔmɛti - From God To Man dir. Lansana Mansaray (Limba)

Māoriland Keynote Address 
5:30 PM, Wed 20 March
Rangiātea Church

The Māoriland Keynote address is a personal and historical perspective given by a prominent Māori filmmaker. Past keynote speakers were Tainui Stephens, Lawrence Makoare, Larry Parr, Julian and Mabelle Dennison, Rawiri Paratene, Heperi and Awatea Mita, Temuera Morrison, Rena Owen, Waihoroi Shortland and Libby Hakaraia.
Highly recognised Māori artists have responded to the theme of this year’s MFF Kia Tau Te Rongomau with captivating work in the Ōtaki township.

The Māoriland Film Festival Arts Installation project is curated by Rachael Rākena, an Associate Professor of Māori Art and a celebrated Kai Tahu Video Installation artist.

The project is made possible through the generous support of an Arts Grant from Creative New Zealand. The captivating installations feature the exceptional works of Regan Balzer, Tame Iti, Ngātaiharuru Taepa, and Johnson Witehira. We are immensely proud to have these esteemed artists as the MFF2024 Keynote Address.


Closing Night Screening - Fry Bread Face & Me
6:30 PM, Sun 24 Mar 
Ngā Purapura
2023 | 83 mins | Billy Luther |  | English
 
It’s 1990. Benny is a Native American boy growing up in San Diego who plays with dolls and listens to Fleetwood Mac. Everything Benny thinks he knows about himself and his family is turned upside down when his parents force him to spend the summer at his Grandma Lorraine’s sheep ranch on the reservation in Arizona. There he meets his cousin Dawn— AKA Frybread Face, a pudgy 11-year-old vagabond, tough-as-nails tomboy. Benny has never met anyone like her, and he is equally intimidated and impressed by her knowledge of Navajo language and tradition. Benny is introduced to Navajo life on the Rez, and his unruly uncle Marvin. Together, Benny and Fry create a memorable summer.
