We have just completed a week’s viewing of some of the great films shown at this year’s film festival in Auckland. My favourite film was ‘I, Daniel Blake’ from the UK.
We also attended the world premiere of a new NZ film called ‘The Rehearsal’ that was directed by Margie’s cousin Alison Maclean and it was great to catch up with her again as she lives in New York, USA. We also went to the after parrty which was fun.
There were several other films that were all great and I am always amazed about the variety and emotion delivered by today’s film industry. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the festival.
