The Civic

The NZ International Film Festival returns this winter with a programme of feature films and documentaries.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the film festival in Auckland and a specially curated retrospective of past festival films features throughout the 17-day festival. The Civic hosts 50+ films including Cannes Palme d'Or winner Shoplifters, Jury prize winner Capharnaümlive cinema The General with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, and the latest films direct from festivals in the USA, Australia and Europe.

Our atmospheric picture palace, The Civic, is the Auckland home of the festival, lending a real sense of occasion and glamour to this wonderful event. Each year Auckland Live hangs the beautifully restored 1920s flamingo curtain especially for the festival and film buffs from across Auckland look forward to the curtain rising throughout the season.

Visit New Zealand International Film Festival for more information. Tickets are on sale now.
