Winner, Best New Zealand Editing: Thomas Gleeson
Special Mention, Best New Zealand Feature
In the race for existence, striking teenagers discover that activism, authority and awareness make for a steep learning curve.
Determined to provoke real action, New Zealand teenagers join the global School Strike for Climate.
But planning a movement and building momentum are the easy parts as they face political indifference, their own white privilege, and the ongoing struggle to be heard. Meanwhile, the tides continue to rise.
Everyone, everywhere has to see High Tide-Don’t Hide. It is the best, most important film I have seen in years, gives me hope for the future, kia kaha rangatahi mā, you can make a difference!!
