“We’re excited to be back at all the main centres (Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton, Christchurch and Dunedin) as well as smaller towns and communities such as Stewart Island, Alexandra and Dargaville. This year we are also working on bringing Show Me Shorts to Nelson and Great Barrier Island for the first time!” -Festival Director Gina Dellabarca
