There for the first time you, our brilliant supporters, will be able to stand in the presence of a mighty 4x2m portrait of one magical Rimu. Along side this portrait will be our extensive line up supporting media which has been described as a 'Media Storm'. Dynamic large format photographic prints and an epic timelapse video complement the Rimu portrait and perfectly describe our climbing and creative experiences during the shoot. 

Notably our documentary about Pureora Forest called 'On The Shoulders of Giants' will also be playing on the big screen at the event. This 30 minute journey documents the long history of bushcraft, forestry, protests, conservation and launches into the future of canopy science. 


Attendance numbers are limited. Tickets are offered on a first come first served basis. The NZTP team will confirm your tickets via email.

Creating a portrait of an entire native tree is one of the goals of the New Zealand Tree Project, which seeks to document the ancient giants of Pureora Forest. This timelapse of a giant rimu will feature in a documentary that the group plans to release at the end of 2015.

Cant Make it to the Premiere?


This one night only premiere event will be followed up by a week long showing at the Wintec RAMP Gallery in Central Hamilton. This space will be transformed into a glorious display of forest in the city and will give all those who miss the main premiere event another chance to see a limited selection of content.
