Wellington Independent Film Festival

At Wellington Independent Film Festival we are looking for unique and standout works of the independent film industry, to showcase in front of a live audience at Time Cinema Wellington.

The challenges independent filmmakers face, the large competition for viewers’ attention, finding funding and getting a distributor can only be overcome by the industry coming together and creating opportunities for those who need and deserve it. Our festival’s aim is to create an opportunity for filmmakers to show their work to the right audience at this intimate and cosy event, and get one step closer to success by receiving recognition for their art.

The films screened at Wellington Independent Film Festival are carefully selected by our festival programmers, whose goal is to create an inspiring, wide selection of films that all have at least one thing in common: they are made by artists who live and breathe for cinema.
