Each documentary explores the theme ‘connection’ in a unique and innovative way while showcasing some of New Zealand’s best documentary making talent. The documentaries span a wide range of styles and subjects from the weird and wonderful to challenging and controversial, provoking audiences to think, laugh, cry or maybe even get up and dance.
Additionally, this year, Loading Docs Executive Producers Julia Parnell and Anna Jackson are very proud to announce that five of the documentaries have been selected to premiere at the New Zealand International Film Festival, which launches 16 July. Following their NZIFF debut, these films will also be available to view online. See the Loading Docs website for the premiere screening times for each film.
Coming from New York to celebrate the launch of Loading Docs is guest of honour Rebecca Howard, General Manager of Video for The New York Times. Rebecca is at the forefront of online content creation and will be sharing her experience with our filmmakers and holding an industry master-class tackling the changing media landscape online and bringing ground-breaking strategies to develop and grow video content across all platforms.
