NZIFF Free Theatre: New Zealand International Film Festival 2017
03 Aug to 20 Aug
The NZIFF is coming to Christchurch with its strongest showing yet.
This year we're offering 90 films from more than 20 countries, including first releases of Kiwi films - features, documentaries and shorts - plus handpicked selections fresh from highly-acclaimed awards circuits such as Cannes, Berlin and Sundance.
Christchurch has three world premieres this year plus a live cinema event.
The live cinema event will be held at the Isaac Theatre Royal on August 19 with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra playing the score to 1923 silent film starring Buster Keaton, Our Hospitality. Just like the old days!
Tickets go on sale Friday 14 July from 10.00am from the Isaac Theatre Royal Box Office and midday from Hoyts Northlands.
Advance bookings are available for all NZIFF sessions. Seats are allocated on the basis of best available at the time of purchase. Book early to secure your favourite seats. Ticketing links will be active on the film pages and the schedule page once available.
