The third NZ International Fraud Film Festival is taking place in Auckland during November and explores the themes of scams, corruption, tax evasion, and art forgery.

The festival will deliver two full days of films and documentaries, on 13 and 14 November, about fraud and its prevention, followed by live discussions, to inspire awareness and debate around these issues.

It precedes International Fraud Awareness Week, which is being held worldwide from 17-23 November.

Among the films being given their New Zealand premieres is The Kleptocrats, a documentary on Malaysia’s $4.5 billion 1MDB corruption case. Also premiering is The Panama Papers documentary which delves into the global dirty money scandal.

Other films playing in New Zealand for the first time are Inside Lehman Brothers, a scathing indictment of corporate culture and There Are No Fakes, which exposes an art forgery ring counterfeiting indigenous art for big bucks.
