R50 A Screening: Cape Town International Film Market & Festival

Watch South Africa's Oscar Nominee for R50 OR 1 of 120 world-class films including 17 South African productions

The inaugural Cape Town International Film Market and Festival (CTIFM&F) is in full swing. On until Friday 19 October 2018, there are over 120 world-class film screenings, including SA's Oscar nominations and original documentaries and short films from creatives across the globe. And everyone can be a part of it: There are package tickets, but you can also just view an individual screening for only R50. 

VENUES ACROSS THE V&A
Over 61 short films have been submitted and they are set to be screened at various venues around the V&A Waterfront. Full lengths to shorts, you'll be able to catch a screening for just R50 per movie (yes, really). 

The CTIFM&F is proud to include 17 South African short films this year, including award-winning director Reabetswe Moeti’s Mma Moeketsi starring Keketso Semoko, known for her role as Ma Agnes on Isidingo.

Another South African short is Fatima, a story from director Imran Hamdulay that follows a young woman as she defies her family’s wishes for her to enter an arranged marriage and then suffers a tragic consequence.

A proudly Capetonian short, Sofia de Fay’s Masquerading: To Hell and Back, is a tale about a letter written by a 58-year-old Cape coloured drag queen, Sandra Dee, to her best friend celebrating their complicated 30-year friendship. Sandra Dee reminisces about their shared memories and struggles to survive during the apartheid regime, and the adventures and misfortune they endured because of their colour and transgender identity.

You'll also be able to catch the world and South African premieres of these films...
