“The World Cinema Showcase, the mini-festival presented every autumn by the organisers of the mammoth mid-winter International Film Festival, celebrated its first decade in 2008 with an acclaimed programme and record attendances.

For two weeks each autumn, filmgoers in Christchurch can feast on a menu of quality films from around the world. This friendly and accessible festival aims to celebrate all genres of film, celebrating the talents of new and not-so-new filmmakers.

This year’s programme promises to be another stunner as we bring you a programme full of exceptional films. Confirmed highlights including The Class – last year’s Cannes Film Festival Palme D’Or winner; Jonathan Demme’s sensational new film Rachel Getting Married featuring an Oscar worthy performance from Anne Hathaway; comedian Bill Maher’s Religulous, a scathing comic tour of the world’s religions; plus a stunning collection of documentaries.”
