NZ & Arthouse Film Festival


2nd NZ & Arthouse Film Festival at Everybody's Theatre

Starting Friday 26 October to Sunday 4 November 2018

We offer a range of past NZ films along with a selection of 2 Arthouse movies featuring gardens and gardeners such as

A Little Chaos where 'Two talented landscape artists become romantically entangled while building a garden in King Louis XIV's palace at Versailles.' and ...

Gardening with Soul is a feature length documentary following a year in the garden with 90-year-old Sister Loyola Galvin. Sister Loyola's optimism is infectious and it's fed every day by her love of gardening. Themes of faith, aging and compassion sit alongside the practicalities of community life, issues within the Catholic Church and the importance of good compost in this intimate, funny and moving portrait of a woman approaching the end of her life.
