Screenings in New Zealand

22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.

One of the most successful countries involved in the Global Premiere on September 22nd, with packed out cinemas across the country and loads more being booked through Indiescreenings.net

The Global Premiere followed on from the novel and exciting Australia and New Zealand biggest and greenest premiere ever. Lizzie Gillett the producer was hosting in Auckland, Franny the director was linked up live by satellite in Sydney.
In NZ Lucy Lawless walked the green carpet and Keisha Castle-Hughes arrived to the event by rickshaw. Lizzie said of the evening: there was a “traditional Maori welcome [that] set the tone for the night with it's relaxed but genuine and intense message about people coming together to share an important message.”
 
Over in Australia there were Giant penguins walking the green carpet, koalas in boats under the Sydney Harbour bridge, top celebrities crying and Senator Milne even called the Australian Government the "House of Stupid.   Franny’s favourite part of the evening was the live link up to explorer Eric Philips in the Arctic.   The film continued to screen in cinemas across New Zealand and Australia for the rest of the week.

On September 21st / 22nd, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid was launched internationally at the biggest and greenest live film event the world has ever seen. A-list celebrities walked the green carpet to an eco cinema tent in downtown New York, linked by satellite to 700 cinemas in 50+ countries. Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.
