DOWN UNDER BERLIN – AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND FILM FESTIVAL

Additional screening of “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” scheduled for this Sunday

Producer Carthew Neal specializes in providing “addictive entertainment”. The much anticipated screen adventure “Hunt for the Wilderpeole” (2016) by Taika Waititi is a telling example of just that. The German premiere of the film which is presented by the Australian & New Zealand Film Festival Down Under Berlin has already been sold out even before the festival has begun. To meet the huge ticket demand Down Under Berlin has scheduled an additional screening at Moviemento Kino for Sunday, 18 September 2016 at 10:30pm.

The screening follows the original session at 8:15pm on 18 September which will be introduced by His Excellency Rod Harris, New Zealand’s Ambassador to Germany, and attended by producer Carthew Neal who will be available for a Q&A with the audience. Afterwards, festival guests are invited to join the official closing reception sponsored by the New Zealand Embassy in the festival lounge where the recipients of the audience awards 2016 will be announced.
