Durban International Film FestivalDurban
This annual film festival is one of the oldest and largest film festivals in Southern Africa, with over 200 screenings showcasing the best of African and international cinema. Film-makers can win substantial prizes in various categories at the festival.
There are also a number of seminars, discussions, workshops and outreach into township areas where cinemas don’t exist. The Durban Film Mart, which is connected with the festival, allows film-makers the opportunity to pitch their film to a group of producers in hope of receiving funding.
