finds: watch New Zealand short films for free (yes, FREE!)

July 23, 2010

A number (currently 140 titles) of seminal New Zealand short films have been made available for free streaming, courtesy of NZONSCREEN and the NZ Film Commission. A great new way to expose NZ films and filmmakers to the world.

From surrealist horrors, Alison Maclean’s Cannes-screened 1989 Kitchen Sink and psychological thrillers, the 2006 Nature’s Way, to quirky, to dark comedies, The Lounge Bar (1988) and fantastical fictions, like Cow (2001).

I’ve managed to catch a few in the past (Kitchen Sink is screened as a bog standard for any University of Auckland Film Studies 101 student) but a number have yet to flash past my eyes. With my lack of time at the moment, I hardly get the chance to watch films. Short films are the perfect quick fix.

Watch the films here.
