ABOUT THE JOZI FILM FESTIVAL
Now the first festival on the yearly South African film festival calendar, the Jozi Film Festival is an annual event that showcases the latest films made by South African and international filmmakers in one of Africa's most vibrant cities - Johannesburg. We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to enriching local culture, supporting the city’s vibrant film community, and reaching new audiences through the powerful language of film.
The Fourth Annual Jozi Film Festival, taking place 20-22 February 2015, will highlight the very best in filmmaking, presenting a multi-genre slate of films from emerging and established filmmakers, exploring a broad range of topics that affect our communities and stir our hearts and minds.

The festival will also offer provocative Q&A sessions with the filmmakers in attendance, as well as workshops and networking events. Wrapping up the festival will be our exciting Awards Ceremony on February 22, 2015.
