Hawke’s Bay’s sixteenth outdoor film festival at the Black Barn Amphitheatre in Havelock North is just around the corner. The 2019/2020 season will run over nine nights from 27 - 30 December 2019 and from 2 – 6 January 2020. Whilst the film line-up is still being finalised, there will be plenty of variety to satisfy a broad range of movie appetites. The final programme, print-your-own-eticket facility, as well as movie and venue details, will be available from mid-November onwards. 

The Amphitheatre in the foothills of Te Mata Peak was purpose-built for performances and has quickly gained a reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest outdoor venues. It has great acoustics, good sightlines, the best of technology installed and views to die for. Moviegoers can relax back on grassed terraces, sip a glass of wine, nibble on snacks from the in-house caterers or bring a picnic of their own to share with friends. Image by Tom Burstyn
