Native Cinema Circle
in June 2015, a gathering was held at Rama First Nation in Ontario, Canada, of indigenous film festival directors from around the world.
Wairoa Maori Film Festival was proudly represented by our Festival Director, Leo Koziol (Ngati Rakaipaaka, Ngati Kahungunu).
More details are coming soon on the Native Cinema Circle website, but for now check out our brother and sister film festivals around the world!
