Reel Life: Get Offside for A Good Cause

This weekend, Wellywood readers can support a good cause, and see a great movie while they're doing it.  Hobbit-gate sucked up all the film-related outrage last year, but here's why you should know who Iranian film-maker Jafar Panahi is -- and care that he's been imprisoned and banned from making films for twenty years.

There will be a screening of Panahi's film Offside at Wellington's Paramount Theatre THIS SUNDAY AT 6.15pm. Speakers will include Amnesty NZ, film-maker Faramarz Beheshti, whose Salaam Rugby premiered at the 2010 Festival, and, for the Festival, Bill Gosden. Admission is free but koha is requested to cover theatre rental costs.
