Square Eyes is a registered charitable trust established to present imaginative and diverse collective viewing experiences for young and young-at-heart audiences.
SQUARE EYES presents cinema from around the world, introducing children to new ideas and different cultural perspectives through a familiar medium. Although primarily dedicated to those between five and twelve, SQUARE EYES events are suitable for all, presenting films that are ageless, celebrating a wide array of complex visions by filmmakers who are dedicated to creating work for young audiences.
A not-for-profit organisation, SQUARE EYES was formally launched at the 2005 New Zealand International Film Festival by Nic Marshall, and has continued this partnership in a programming capacity for the All Ages section within NZIFF ever since.
Outside of NZIFF season, SQUARE EYES present a school holiday timed Mini-Sized Square Eyes programme for those aged 3-12, and the adults who accompanying them, along with previews and premieres of new releases.
