RAFFAs chasing local talent

Ready, set, action for the Raglan Film Festival Awards 2017.

The red carpet beckons local filmmakers and actors with nominations now open for the 2017 Raglan Arts Film Festival Awards (RAFFA).

This year nominations have opened for young and emerging talent with categories for Tamariki – under 12, Rangatahi – 13 to 18 and Emerging Artist as well as Drama, Documentary and Experimental.
