We're going off the rails a bit this month and diverting from our normal course of shouting out stuff that's available to enjoy online wherever you are.
Our shout-out this month goes to NZ festival Show Me Shorts, which opens this week and plays in plenty of centres around the motu for most of the month.
Partly we're shouting them out because they're bloody good people doing a bloody good job - and have been at it for 18 editions.
Partly we're shouting them out because they have a couple of titles that also appear in our line-ups (Kahu Kaihi's Find Where I Belong and Justin Bennett's What's the Disabili-Tea: Misty Frequency, above).
And also, as well and too, because they've got some great stuff by peeps who've had work in NZ Web Fest. Coincidentally the joint winners of one of our 2022 Best Director awards, Julie Zhu and Michelle Ang, go head to head for Show Me Shorts' Best Director award.
Show Me Shorts announced its finalists last week here, and will hold its awards this Sunday.
Enjoy the festival!
We love to give shout-outs to new content in these newsletters and on our socials, but we don't have much time to trawl for it every month. So, we've decided to make that your opportunity!
If you're releasing something, be it brand new or (for series and podcasts) a new season, shamelessly self-promote by dropping us a line or adding [email protected] to your media list if you're really fancy and have one of those.
Tell us what, when and where your stuff's releasing, and we'll do the honours. We'll give preference to stuff that isn't geo-blocked or behind pay-walls, but all-comers are welcome :)
If we don't know, we can't spread the word, so do share. Help us to help you!
