“A great showcase for local short films and a viable pathway for aspiring filmmakers to present their work".” - Scott Granville

Screening Successful Short Content

What is MistyFlicks?

We are a creative region. And the screen sector strengthens our region.  MistyFlicks is an opportunity as a filmmaker to screen your short content, or as an audience to watch local short content with the feel of the cinema experience. Enjoy a night out at your local cinema to see a piece of Waikato.

What we consider as the Waikato?

The Waikato is the fourth largest region in New Zealand, covering 25,000 square kilometres. It stretches from the Bombay Hills and Port Waikato in the north down to the Kaimai Ranges and Mt Ruapehu in the south, and from Mokau on the west coast across to the Coromandel Peninsula in the east. 

Why do we do it?

Many local filmmakers have international success with their films, but locals miss out. We want to give our filmmakers a local platform to screen their work.

History

MistyFlicks Short Film Showcase started in 2018, and each year it’s our aim to bring the show to another venue within the region.
