Chill out during the NZIFF at Ngā Taonga

Lounge Banner NZIFF
Sip some mulled wine and munch on a cheese roll while you plan which festival film you’ll see next.

Stop by our spacious Wellington café during NZIFF to recharge, plan and book* your next New Zealand International Film Festival experience.

Avoid film festival fatigue by chilling out between screenings in our central Wellington café on the corner of Taranaki and Ghuznee Streets. From 27 July to 12 August take a moment to relax with 'winter warmers' like mulled wine and cheese rolls.

We can help you book the next stop on your NZIFF itinerary, or bring us your wish list and we’ll sort out your tickets to the whole lot. If you’re not sure which film to go to next, spend some time in our screening room – Te Wahi Noho (The Lounge), where we will be playing NZIFF trailers on loop, to help you decide what to see!

* When you book an NZIFF film at our café (for any venue, not just a screenings at our Cinema) receive a 20% discount on any alcoholic drink or a juice from the Phoenix range. One discounted drink per ticket bought (responsible host obligations apply if not all ticket holders are onsite).

Our café opening hours during NZIFF are Monday & Tuesday 8.30am to 4pm, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday, 8.30am to 8.30pm and Saturday, 4pm to 8.30pm.
