Show Me Shorts in Wānaka

Show me Shorts: Beard and Raincoat.

The Show Me Shorts Film Festival in Wānaka takes place on October 20, and the Wānaka Sun has three tickets to give away. 

Highlights of the event, at Ruby’s Cinema and Bar, include eight short films featuring a range of subjects from a lost donkey to a stolen moon buggy and a history lesson to a hijacked car.

Festival director Gina Dellabarca said, “Our programming team have scoured the world to find the best new short films for Kiwis to enjoy. The quality of films overall was very high this year.”

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, “Show Me Shorts festival plays an important role in nurturing our local talent. The festival is also committed to bringing cinema to communities across New Zealand, allowing more people to enjoy the artistry and imagination of short film. To everyone attending the 2019 festival, I hope you enjoy the show! Whether you’re left laughing, crying or wondering what exactly you just witnessed, I am sure these short films will stick with you long after the end credits are over.”

Show Me Shorts Film Festival Trust exists to connect New Zealanders with short films and share New Zealand short films with the world. The Trust also creates opportunities for aspiring filmmakers.
