A typical year in Auckland

Civic Theatre

The magnificent Civic Theatre – main venue for the NZ Film Festival, visit behind the scenes during the Heritage Festival

Every year Auckland plays host to some fantastic festivals and events. Here’s a selection of my favourites…

Writers Festival, May – long weekend of authors from around the world, always something interesting / thought-provoking

Architecture Film Festival, May / June – if architecture / urban design is of interest then the Rialto is the place to be

Documentary Edge Film Festival, late May / early June – good selection of documentaries from around the world, some pretty eclectic!

NZ Film Festival, late July / early August – highlight of the winter, three weeks of the best new films showing across town including at the magnificent Civic Theatre

Auckland Heritage Festival, October – hundreds of events over three weeks, showing how much history even a young city like Auckland had, most of which are free
