Safe/Sound - Local Premiere Screening

Safe/Sound (formerly known as Prince) Filmmakers Mason Cade Packer (Director, Producer) and Micah Winiata (Producer) are holding a local premiere screening of Safe/Sound. The films contributing members from the Kāpiti community have been invited and it is now being offered to the community to attend this special premiere screening.

When a school principal hears of an encroaching threat, an escaped convict who has been silently breaking into teenage girls' homes in the night, he becomes overprotective of one of his closest students as the supernatural trespasser comes to collect…

This 40-minute short thriller film could not have been made without the help of dozens of local businesses and individuals, and as such, the filmmakers wish to thank and celebrate the incredible contributions of those involved by hosting this free screening, generously provided by Te Raukura ki Kāpiti and Kāpiti College. In attendance will be members of the cast and crew, including producer Micah Winiata and director Mason Cade Packer, as well as students and faculty from Kāpiti College.

The film’s length is 40-minutes, and will be introduced by a short introductory thank you video, and followed by a behind-the-scenes look into the production. The expected total runtime will be approximately one hour. Refreshments will be available for purchase from our licenced kiosk bar.

Please note that this film is not yet rated. It does contain some short graphic moments of violence. The filmmakers believe it is appropriate for audience members aged 13 and up.

This project was resourced and funded by over 300 local individuals and businesses before it was shot over 8 days in Kāpiti in July last year.

Safe/Sound attracted beloved and internationally recognised kiwi cast to the project. It stars Beulah Koale (Hawaii 5-0, Next Goal Wins), Ryan O’Kane (Baby Done, One Lane Bridge), Madeleine Adams (Black Christmas, The Gulf) and Cori Gonzalez-Macuer (What We Do in the Shadows). The film is directed by LA-based, Kāpiti born film director, Mason Cade Packer who returned to his high school from LA to shoot this ambitious 40-minute thriller.

"It's a film I was adamant on making in my hometown (and at my old high school), because that's where I fell in love with filmmaking; in one of only three New Zealand high schools that actually offered it as a subject.- Mason Cade Packer
