Jacob Powell and Doug Dillaman have been hosting the sporadic Best Worst Podcast –  focusing on the best and worst that cinema has to offer – since 2011. This year, we’re proud to present their annual festival preview episode, which calls attention to some of the lesser known films in the 2016 New Zealand International Film Festival programme that might have passed under your radar, including the first female Mongolian teenage eagle trainer, Werner Herzog’s inimitable look at the Internet, a mockumentary about the Apollo space mission and much more.

Here's a list of the films mentioned with links to their major city screenings:
