The Jozi Film Festival Returns this October


The Jozi Film Festival Returns this October

                             Posted: Sep 24 2019

THE JOZI FILM FESTIVAL (JFF) IS JOHANNESBURG’S LONGEST RUNNING MULTI-GENRE FILM FESTIVAL, NOW IN ITS 8TH YEAR.

The festival began in 2012 and was initially created to provide a platform for local filmmakers and reach audiences under serviced by traditional cinemas. The festival began accepting entries from around the world in 2014 and is now firmly established as one of the sub-continent's leading film festivals. The Jozi Film Festival is proudly independent, and a supporter of independent films. We support and showcase both upcoming talent and veteran filmmakers.

The festival will be ongoing from the 3rd to the 6th of October.
