    Vision Feast is a welcome and rising alternative voice in the NZ film festival line up. Aleksander, Jonathan and team care about film makers and put a lot of work into an exciting screening and awards event held in a cool down town Auckland cinema. Well worth submitting!

  • Thank you for the great communication and selecting Noctuidae as a nominée of best science fiction!

  • Thank you for the nominee selection. Love whoever does the design for your branding. It was a real shame that they didn't announce a programme, and instead did a 'reveal' on the night. It might keep it interesting for locals, but international teams need time to book travel. In place of that, it would have been nice if there was some better coverage of photos, or even live socials on the night.

    Response from festival:

    Thanks for the feedback Auryn. Yes we agree, next year we are going to announce the international screenings prior to the event and keep the local winners quite till the night. We think that will work as a nice compromise. We are working towards having more live social media coverage on the night, but right now all our teams hands a full on the night and we need a dedicated person to tackle that. Something we are working towards for future events. Our event photos are live on the website now. Thanks so much for being part of our 2022 season.
