New Zealand passed the first stage of a national gay marriage law yesterday. Grateful that THE SKIN I’M IN could be a part of this year’s Out Takes New Zealand Film Festival.

 

THE SKIN I’M IN will make its world LGBT festival premiere as part of New Zealand’s Out Takes 2012 Festival

Out Takes New Zealand 2012

For those of you in the southern hemisphere, we are proud to announce that THE SKIN I’M IN will make its world LGBT festival premiere as part of New Zealand’s Out Takes 2012 Festival. Given New Zealand’s particular history of fierce independence and coexistence between Maori and immigrant populations, and a cultural ethos that eschews pretense or  posturing, we’re extremely excited to share the film with New Zealand audiences.

THE SKIN I’M IN will screen twice as part of the festival: first in Auckland on May 26th at 1 PM and then in Wellingon on June 4th at 3:30 PM. More information at: http://www.outtakes.org.nz/film/390/the_skin_i’m_in
