M.I.C – Toi Rerehiko are proud to present POLLYWOOD SIX08, curated by Craig Fasi. Continuing on from the previous successful FIVE years of screening Pacific Island Short Film; POLLYWOOD SIX08 is set to please audiences yet again..

POLLYWOOD, a well known advocate of Pacific Island Short film, has produced another fantastic line up of Polynesian theme short films. Encompassing Drama, comedy, experimental and documentary work, POLLYWOOD SIX08 has something for everyone.

Short films directed, written and featuring Nesian people. Celebrating our cultural identities, stories, thoughts and ideas, Pollywood is the only annual program of its kind here in New Zealand.

Craig Fasi has organized and curated Pollywood since 2000 while working with the Moving Image Centre, now MIC Toi Rerehiko. “I am constantly humbled by the support the program receives …. six years later the momentum of Pollywood couldnt be any stronger” says Mr Fasi.

Featuring 9 films that make up 80mins of interesting, insightful and educational work. Highlighting an archival piece from the Polynesian Christchurch based organization, “Pacific Underground” www.myspace.com/pacificunderground, the film “Nice Jacket” made in 2002 by Mishelle Muagututi’a and Pos Mavaega is an early account of the challenges faced by Pacific Island artists that is still relevant today.

Pollywood, for the first time, is screening an international work by Alex Munoz, www.fyifilms.org – a Los Angeles based director who’s 1 minute film directly relates to the celebration of one’s own culture, and reflects on what once was in modern day Guahan.
