About

This year we have an awesome selection of film`s from Tongans based all around the globe to local Tongan filmmakers in Tonga and from Tongans here in Aotearoa.

This year we are very proud to feature a strong woman line up with a diverse collection of filmmakers including Ofakilevuka Guttenbeil-Likiliki, Juliana Brown Eyes, Malani Wolfgramm, Maria Vai, Sisiuno Helu and Simulata Pope.

The long-held community dream of a music and arts centre for young people in Glen Innes is here.
In this multi-purpose space, young people and the local community can come together to perform, practise and learn the arts; express their creativity and talents; and celebrate their cultures.
