Makers Org NZ is proud to bring you The Maker Movie as part of our Maker Cinema events.
The “Maker Movement”, sometimes called the "Third Industrial Revolution," subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, "Maker" delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.
The NZ context
We are screening this movie in three locations across NZ, in conjunction with Fabriko in Christchurch and Mindkits in Auckland, we'll also be doing a little Q&A afterwards so that those of us who have been working in the background for the last few years can try to answer any questions you might have. This is a great chance to get some insight into the global maker scene and also have your say in the direction of the local movement.
