24th May-7th June 2019 

Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival is New Zealand’s only film festival focusing specifically on nature and the environment - and it’s right here in Palmerston North.

For the 14th year in a row, Reel Earth is set to wow it’s audience with a showcase of the best and most recent environmental films – both homegrown and from around the globe.

Reel Earth is currently finalising the planning strategy. The key films and topics will be revealed very soon.  

Our film+talk series means you’ll have the opportunity to discuss these topics with presenters, filmmakers and other experts at each of our screenings.

  • WHERE: Films will be screened in Palmerston North and nearby, in places you’d expect - and some you don't. 
  • TICKETS: Eventfinda and door sales. Registration for free events is still required on Eventfinda. 
  • SHORT FILM COMPETITION 2019: More details on guidelines for 2019 entrants coming soon. 

We welcome your feedback and your film ideas for 2019 – Visit us on
