The Top of the South Film Festival is celebrating its 7th year hosting the event. During this time we have established ourselves as one of New Zealand’s most promising up and coming festivals. The Top of the South Film Festival brings together the best and most promising filmmakers and offers them an opportunity to showcase their films on the big screen, as well as witness some of New Zealand’s most promising actors and actresses, boasting incredible on-screen performances.
We are regionally focused and only accept film submissions from our own Top of the South region for our Gold and Silver Reels, including Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough, Kaikōura, Westport and Golden Bay. Our long-term goal is to establish a thriving film industry that provides employment opportunities to local filmmakers. This festival is a fundraiser for our Top of the South Filmmakers with all proceeds used to nurture filmmaking excellence and support filmmaking growth and education, enabling filmmakers the opportunity to make even better films!
