School Group Screenings


Show Me Shorts Film Festival is pleased to once again be offering special screenings for school children and other groups at most of our cinemas nationwide.

School Group Screenings offer a selection of high quality, fun and educational short films that are most suitable for 8-16yr olds. Here’s last year’s selection, which we call ‘My Generation’. This year’s School Group Screenings will contain about seven short films from New Zealand and overseas, plus one New Zealand music video. The screening will be rated G or PG and usually runs for approximately 80 minutes.

Studying short films can enhance students’ literacy and skills, especially in English, drama, and media studies.

“Overall, the short film unit has been really enjoyable and the ‘My Generation’ session was the perfect programme for our class.”
