Pacific Dance OnScreen


event Details

Pacific Dance OnScreen is the film screening of the Pacific Dance Festival. The team at Pacific Dance NZ have brought together a collection of films inspired by Pacific dances – although not all fit into a traditional definition of a dance film, all have a love of dance at their core.  

Come with friends and whānau to enjoy this selection of films in one place and be swept up in the rhythms of the Pacific Dance Festival. 

Please note that two films have a 3-dimensional aspect to them and 3D glasses will be provided. If you are motion sensitive, you are welcome to wait in our foyer for the duration of the 3D films.
