Hugh MacDonald (correctly Macdonald) is a New Zealand film director who made films for the Government National Film Unit for over two decades, before going solo. His work includes many travel films and two episodes of ambitious historical drama The Governor.
Macdonald directed the short film This is New Zealand which was shown across three screens in the New Zealand pavilion at Expo '70 in Osaka. Other memorable elements in the pavilion included John Drawbridge’s mural and Sue Skerman’s silkscreened perspex bushwalk. The film went on to attract strong audiences back in New Zealand.
In August 2017, Macdonald presented at the NZIFF the biographical documentary "No Ordinary Sheila", which describes the 9-decades-long life of the Wellington-based natural historian, illustrator and writer Sheila Natusch. The movie was filmed over three years (2014-2017), mostly in Wellington and Stewart Island.
