The New Zealand International Film Festival have announced three more films set to screen this year. These late confirmations came in right after the printing of the schedule, making them hotter than ‘hot off the press’. These new confirmations are:
Craig Zobel’s tense dramatic thriller that provoked a big reception at Sundance. Inspired by true events, the manager of a fast food restaurant follows instructions over the phone from a supposed authority figure, asking her to interrogate one of her young employees.
The second annual Artists Cinema collection showcases a number of politically charged and visually focused New Zealand short films, from artists Steve Carr, Simon Denny, Peter Wareing, Miranda Parkes, Gabriel White, Tahi Moore and Karin Hofko.
Modern-day Chinese revenge film about a poor labourer who goes on a journey to claim the head of his brother’s murderer.
Extra sessions at Rialto Newmarket have also been added to the following films:
Room 237: Being an Inquiry into The Shining in 9 Parts – Friday, July 20, 1.45pm & Wednesday, July 25, 8.20pm (book tickets)
And just because it looks so damn good, here's the trailer to Compliance:
