Top of the Lake: China Girl to premiere at NZIFF 2017
Jane Campion’s TV Series to Premiere in Full at NZIFF
The festival’s first-ever long form television series has been announced today for the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF).
Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake: China Girl, presented by UKTV and SKY, a six-part television series screening later this year on UKTV, will premiere in full at NZIFF. Tickets for this special event will go on sale early in Auckland.
“For the first time we welcome a long-form television series to the giant screens at NZIFF, and it’s the most enthralling six hours I have spent in front of a screen this year. We can promise you an immersive experience in Auckland and Wellington, and due to the six-hour duration the screenings will have two intermissions,” says NZIFF Director Bill Gosden.

Jane Campion’s next instalment sees Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) returning to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises ‘China Girl’ didn’t die alone.
“With its sharp writing, superior cast, evocative locations, seductively seamy subject matter and delicious performances, Top of the Lake is decidedly back in a major way.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
Top of the Lake: China Girl is presented by UKTV and SKY.
