New Zealand Documentary Feature Hip Hop-eration In Competition at the World's Leading International Documentary Festival
Director Bryn Evan's documentary feature debut, Hip Hop-eration, will have its international premiere In Competition in the First Appearance section of the 2014 International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). Held from November 19 - 30th, IDFA is the largest and most important documentary film festival and market in the world.
Produced by Paula Jones and exec produced by Unitec's head of department for Performing and Screen Arts, Alex Lee, Hip Hop-eration was made with funding from the New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC).
The film has just been released by Rialto Distribution across NZ to rave reviews.
This is exactly what the first Waiheke Local Board, with the exception of Paul Walden, envisaged when we granted a small amount to the film company making the documentary to help with their travel to and from the island. We had tremendous faith in Billie and Crew and could see the potential for promoting the island to an international audience.
