NZFF 2012

Yes, it is that favourite time of the year again: the New Zealand International Film Festival. So excited!

What follows is my 'long-list' (as I still need to bring it down to a short-list!).  I'll be editing it with comments, imdb links, and NZ releases dates to help whittle the list down some. Of course, the times they are screening and the cost will have to be taken into consideration too (unfortunately, though I plan to take a few days off work and pack 3 or so films into each day!)

$ = tickets bought!
^ = will watch
