INsite has double movie passes are up for grabs! That’s right, thanks to Vendetta Films we are offering your residents the chance to see Winter at Westbeth – a gorgeous documentary film about a unique retirement community in New York, released 27th April.

“Many want to live here, but only a few may do so – the lucky ones.”

So begins the trailer to Winter at Westbeth  – a beautiful documentary film about a retirement community in New York City whose focus is on ‘ageing creatively’.

In 1966, the Westbeth building was purchased to create 385 rent-controlled apartments for artists to live and work. It is known as Westbeth Artists’ Housing, which is essentially a retirement community that has grown organically.

The documentary focuses on three Westbeth residents and their individual creative endeavours. One is a dancer, one a poet and one a film-maker. Their stories are bound to resonate with older Kiwis – particularly those with a passion for the arts.

The film will be released in New Zealand cinemas on 27th April.

Vendetta Films marketing coordinator Rupert Abraham thinks the film will be a hit with retirement villages and those in the arts community. A special screening of Winter at Westbeth could be the ideal activity or outing for a group of residents.

If your retirement village is interested in arranging a special screening of Winter at Westbeth, or arranging giveaways for your residents to see the film, please get in touch with Rupert Abraham of Vendetta Films at

BE IN TO WIN! Vendetta Films has also kindly supplied three double passes to Winter at Westbeth. Please email INsite editor Jude Barback at if you would like to get your hands on a double pass.
