Doc Edge Festival has announced three films, which are set to screen as part of the 16th edition. One is High Tide Don’t Hide, directed by members of The Rebel Film Collective: Niva Kay (DEGNZ), Emily McDowell, Nia Phipps and Phil Stebbing.

In High Tide Don’t Hide, driven by the climate crisis, five teenagers in New Zealand join the global student protests. But when challenged by Pasifika students the movement has to confront its racial prejudices to lead one of the biggest strikes in the country’s history.

The 2021 Festival will be an all new fusion event, returning to Auckland and Wellington theatres while playing online across the nation. Doc Edge is continuing its commitment to offering unique experiences by working with New Zealand artists to create a festival village at each venue. Festival-goers will enjoy entertainment including art installations, live performances, and virtual and augmented reality exhibitions.
