South Auckland – 15 and 16 August

Regional Screenings – Late August = Northland / Late October = Wanaka Dates TBC

This programme engages secondary and tertiary students with current issues, vital ideas, critical questions and new perspectives, through special in-theatre screenings of latest release documentaries in Auckland and Wellington.

Education kits specific to each film are also provided to teachers, to enable the cinema experience to continue into the classroom.

We have also recently confirmed two South Auckland screenings at the Mangere Arts Centre, for South Auckland schools where travel costs to the city theatres can be prohibitive.

We also run a subscription-based on-demand service, so teachers around the country can access documentaries in their own schools too.

Please follow our facebook page for updated news and information.

We're looking forward to seeing you at the movies!
