Film at the Arts Festival

This year’s New Zealand International Arts Festival, 24 Feb – 18 March, offers a treat for those interested in film, in seeing it on stage and in hearing from people associated with the industry.
The Animals & Children Took to the Streets, described as a giant graphic novel brought to life, features seamlessly synchronised live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation.  This is a twisted new tale from 1927, the multiple award-winning company behind the Festival’s 2010 Club hit Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.  Sponsored by Willis Bond & Co and L T McGuinness.
