New Zealand Cinema

This list is predominantly compiled by other Letterboxd users, I've just combined them in excel, removed duplicates then imported them. I'll be using this as a starting point to continue to add new and old NZ films to this list.

The original list has been heavily edited based on the following criteria:

- Set in NZ, not just filmed here
Or
- Revolves predominantly around Kiwi characters

Also, the films needed to be a feature film or documentary. I know this excludes a lot of films but I wanted to make a list of films that had Aotearoa at its heart.

Also here is a brief list on where to find some of these titles:
