An evening with WIFT (Special Presentation)
|When:||Wednesday, 6 June 2012|
|Where:||The Film Archive, Wellington|
|Running time:||90 minutes|
Free admission to WIFT members
We continue the WIFT screenings at the NZFA in June with two women filmmakers from the 60s and early 70s working in quite different fields.
Shirley Maddock was the first women director in the new medium of Television and we we look at examples of her work in TV documentary and early lifestyle programming. Adrienne Eastwood, on the other hand, developed her craft through home movies and amateur filmmaking and was a first prize winner at Cannes. Fortunately by the early 1970s New Zealand’s only television channel began to support independent local production and screened an array of “fresh” works. Adrienne Eastwood’s short film, Summer with Monika, was one such example and received much acclaim on broadcast 41 years ago, and it’ll be great to see it once more on screen at the Film Archive.
Come at 5.30pm for some networking drinks.
Screening starts at 6pm
