    Intrigued as to what Whanau Marama meant. The Maori to English translation gave it as “Birth Month”. [The film festival explains: The new Festival identity is defined first by the descriptor Whānau Mārama – Family of Light, which suggests the community which unites every July and August, to share the light to be found in the films, stories and ideas projected on screens across the country. “Film is light, mārama; captured in a camera then set free on the screen,” Director Marten Rabarts said. “We know the film festival brings light to New Zealanders in the depths of winter, but Whānau Mārama used lyrically also describes the celestial bodies of the night sky; by these we can navigate, in the same way we use the ideas found in films curated for the festival to chart our way forward.”
