The Māoriland Charitable Trust is a Māori led independent trust based in Ōtaki.

Our purpose is to improve the social, economic and educational opportunities to Māori youth and the wider community of Otaki by means of screening indigenous films and organizing NZ wide activities such as filmmaking workshops.

We operate an annual Indigenous International film festival in Otaki New Zealand named Maoriland Film Festival that is both a commercial and critical success. Over the past five year, it has grown to be an internationally and nationally known film festival.

In October 2017 Māoriland Charitable Trust established the Māoriland Hub, a multi-purpose cinema and arts hub with workshop spaces and a community garden and outdoor event space. Both the Māoriland Hub and The Māoriland Film Festival promote education, collaboration and social cohesion. Youth are a key focus as is the up-skilling of a large volunteer group in areas as diverse as event management and guest hosting. These skills open up national and international opportunities including employment and social entrepreneurship.
