Asian NZ made films show a growing pool of talent 


A huge line-up of ten short films were screened at the Basement Theatre this month to celebrate Asian New Zealand made content and to link up creatives in the filmmaking industry.

Among the films were graduate projects, TVNZ funded shorts, Loading Docs documentaries, experimental, horror and animated films showcasing a wide range of talent and skills from Auckland based creatives, and talks of a Wellington screening have been happening. 

Thanks to the New Zealand Film Commission and Basement Theatre for hosting an awesome event!
