2017 has been an extraordinary one for New Zealand films. Say what you like about the quality of 2017, the sheer quantity of titles has been extraordinary.

It's across the board too - documentaries, dramas, comedies. Even that rare thing in this country; family movies. But it still seems hard to get New Zealand audiences along to a local film - or at least one not made by Taika Waititi.

What are they missing out on? To look over the year's riches Simon Morris is joined by James Robins (The Listener), and Sarah McMullen (Nine To Noon with Kathryn Ryan).
