Kia ora and welcome to Show Me Shorts 2018! Our 13th edition of the festival will take place at more than 20 cinemas across New Zealand, kicking off with our Auckland Opening Night & Awards Ceremony at The Civic on 6 October.

We also celebrate Wellington Opening Night at the Roxy Cinema in Wellington on 12 October. Our Short Film Talks are a great way to learn about films from their creators and will take place in both Auckland and Wellington.
