Ōtaki's film festival shines light on women, indigenous films

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 22 March 2018

A film festival in the small town of Ōtaki is achieving what the tinsel town of Hollywood can't - and that's to promote films by women and about indigenous peoples. Twelve thousand people are expected at Ōtaki's Maoriland Film Festival which is showing more than a hundred indigenous films from 11 countries over the next five days. Sixty percent of the films are directed by women.
