The largest indigneous film festival in the world kicks off today in its tenth year on the Kapiti Coast.

Libby Hakaraia established the festival in 2014 and is stepping down after this year handing the rakau over to her niece Medelin Hakaraia De Young.

This year Maoriland has its largest programme yet, representing more than 150 Indigenous nations from across the world.

Libby Hakaraia spoke to Māni Dunlop.
