The Press reporter Charlie Gates wrote a fascinating article about the decline in DVD rental stores in Christchurch: Ghosts and survivors in fading DVD market. There may be fewer places to hire DVDs from, but you can still get 'em at your local library!
Because I am decidedly average at getting to the movies, the library DVD collection is there to rectify my movie fails.

This led me to make my own list of an imaginary Film Fest - NZ docos!
