International Fraud Film Festival announced for 2022
The New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival (IFFF) reopens its doors to present exciting fraud-based documentaries from around the world.
The announcement that the IFFF will return in 2022 comes at a time when the event’s partners and sponsors are supporting International Fraud Awareness Week, November 14-20.
IFFF Chairman Paul O’Neil says the organizing team is targeting September 2022 for the fourth edition of the event and is pleased to announce that planning for the next festival is now in full swing.
“We are repeating the same format as in previous years, which has proven so successful since the beginning of the first festival in New Zealand in 2019. Film festival supporters and anti-fraud industry professionals can look forward to two days of films and documentaries followed by live expert discussions on fraud and how to prevent it. “
Paul says scammers were not deterred during the COVID-19 pandemic, nor were the filmmakers who worked hard to expose criminal activity.
“We therefore expect that there will be no shortage of brilliant content that will both entertain and educate audiences and make them think about the terrible impact of fraud on people’s lives.”
The Dutch, who first developed the concept of a film festival on the subject of fraud, managed to host an event this month despite the current challenges (https://www.fraudefilmfestival.nl/programma-2021/).

“During International Fraud Awareness Week, we also encourage New Zealanders to take care of themselves and to take advice from the Consumer Protection Agency that they should take a moment to pause and think:”Is that real? “when unexpectedly contacted and asked for personal information.
“Lastly, for anyone wanting a welcome distraction from the current COVID-19 pandemic, we provided a list of our top films from previous festivals for people to enjoy at home.”
