Cinefiles turned out in their hundreds for the launch of the New Zealand International Film Festival at the Civic Theatre last week.

Among the guests were TV3's gorgeous film guru Kate Rodger and her partner Tristan Alfred. Rodger confirmed they are expecting a baby in November.

Rodger, who regularly jetsets all over the world for film premieres and A-list interviews will be swapping the demands of Hollywood stars for the demands of her own little star.

"He's due the night of the Hobbit premiere - what are the odds of that? One of the biggest night in NZ film in a decade and I'll most likely be in labour!"
