The Raglan Arts Film Festival Awards is celebrating 10 years this year of exceptional local filmmaking talent.
Nominations are now open to all ages – all you need is your imagination and a device for filming.
Old School Arts Centre manager Jacqueline Anderson says the RAFFAs were created to recognise the extraordinary talent of local actors, screenwriters, editors, producers and directors interested in making movies.
“It’s always a great pleasure for the RAFFA judges to view the films that are entered and we seem to have more entrants each year and the calibre of the films keeps improving.”
Up-and-coming talent can join the Raglan Filmmakers’ Club to learn new movie making skills, meeting the first and third Thursday of the month at the Old School Arts Centre from 6-7.30pm starting Thursday, July 4 – koha membership.
The club is open to all ages and abilities for people interested in all areas of filmmaking to share ideas, tools of the trade, provide feedback and collaborate on projects.
The film must be associated with Raglan Whaingaroa – either the filmmakers, production crew or actors, or part of the film must have been shot or edited in Raglan. Awards and prizes – including cash and vouchers – will be presented at a Red Carpet Awards night on Saturday, September 28 at the Raglan Town Hall.
