THE WORLD OF FILM TELEVISION AND MEDIA ARTS is in a time of dramatic flux and change. YouTube and the Internet have exploded on to the scene and indigenous cultures around the world have embraced New Media to reinvigorate their Reo, reconnect their global Whanau, and create new narratives and modes of storytelling.

Here in Aotearoa, Maori Television is now a permanent part of our culture and television viewing habits. Taika Waititi's "BOY" is currently top of the NZ Box Office. Australian Aboriginal film maker Warwick Thornton took out the Camera d'Or at Cannes. And the central iconic image of James Cameron's "Avatar" is a poignant hongi between a Native Nav'i and a Pakeha American.

Join us on the second day of the Wairoa Maori Film Festival for a full-day hui on the future of native culture and storytelling. Learn about the latest opportunities -- like isuma.tv, gogglebox and indigitube -- to expose your film works to audiences globally. Skype chat with indigenous film makers around the world. Sample the latest Te Reo Maori iPod and iPad applications. Hear how Nga Aho Whakaari, Script to Screen and Te Paepae Ataata are working to support our independent film and television sector.

The kaupapa of this hui is "Taking Wairoa to Warsaw, Taking Nuhaka to New York." Learn how Maori and kiwi films took Poland by storm at the Wroclaw film festival. Hear about our festival director's experiences at the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan. And explore opportunities for our unique stories and narratives to thrive and survive in the global marketplace.

Places at this hui are limited, but entry is free. Please RSVP to Huia Koziol, Festival Chairperson, on 06 837 8854 or alternatively email maorimovies@gmail.com to apply to attend.

“Hurihia to aroaro ki te ra tukuna to atarangi kia taka ki muri i a koe.”
