First NZIFF Films Announced!

As we head into winter, the New Zealand International Film Festival is warming up, starting today with the announcement of the first four -- all musically-themed -- films confirmed for this year's programme: Kiwi filmmaker Florian Habicht's peek into Britpop band Pulp; the experimental Nick Cave doco 20,000 Days on Earth; Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix biopic starring Outkast's André Benjamin; and the offbeat comedy Frank, which features Michael Fassbender in a giant paper mache head for what seems to be most of the film. Check out the trailer for the latter below, and visit the NZIFF website for more info.
