The International Documentary Film Festival being held in New Zealand later this month is remarkable for the films it won’t be showing. Three fictional samples of non-fiction are given at a micro site developed by Saatchi & Saatchi NZ: “The Munich Buttock Movement” by Tarquin Fortescue, “Wailing Women of Omsk” by Igo Bobokov, and “Worm Farms of Granada” by Dr Jesus Henandez Phd. Sal. They’re viewable on www.notshowing.co.nz and on the Arts and National Geographic TV channels in New Zealand.
The Documentary Film Festival has an official website: http://www.docnzfestival.com/.
The festival is being held at the Academy Cinema in Lorne St, Auckland, 15-28 September, and at the Paramount in Courtenay Place, Wellington, 29 September – 5 October.
The Not Showing campaign was developed at Saatchi & Saatchi NZ, Auckland, by creative directors Mike O’Sullivan and Toby Talbot, copywriters/art directors Andy Dilallo and Jay Benjamin, agency producer Donah Bowers, account supervisor Dominic Henshall, working with Film Festival marketing director Ewa Bigio.
