    1. I haven’t unfortunately. Helping promote the fest, I have a good friend and PR in Christchurch. I’ve seen a bunch of the features coming up at NZIFF so will be writing about those. You?

      1. That’s a good thing you do there, Robin. I need to dedicate more time to these festivals too… I barely have enough time to write well the reviews now 🙂 Did you spot some interesting sci-fi features on the festival?
