In the Shade Film Festival


An oasis of cool cinema for summer! We love the beach & being outdoors but we also love movies. IN THE SHADE says let's do both. 

The festival was created for two reasons : (1) to fill the gap left by the cancellation of the NZ International Film Festival and (2) to help two cool independent venues greatly affected by the lockdown. Every dollar spent on tickets, beverages, candy will go a long way in helping them to get back on their feet.

100 person capacity per screening under the Red Light alert level in the Covid Traffic Light System, so get in quick! More tickets to be added if we move to the Orange Light alert level. Vaccine certificate will be required upon entry.

See you this Summer!
