The Shore Break, an award-winning film that unpacks the dilemma faced by a rural community on South Africa’s Wild Coast as to whether to support or resist a proposed titanium mining project that could fundamentally change their lives forever, will have its South African co-premiere at the Encounters International Documentary Film Festival in June and at the Durban International Film Festival in July.
Nineteen documentaries and fiction feature film projects from around Africa have been selected for this year’s Durban FilmMart(DFM) which takes place in Durban, South Africa from July 17 to 20, 2015. The details of the selection were announced at a networking function held at the South Africa Pavilion at the Cannes International Film Festival last night.
Questions around African identity and belonging are woven into this year's programme for the National Arts Festival, with continental representation from countries such as Botswana, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
The Cape Dance Company has performed at the National Arts Festival since the company was established in 1995 – and, if artistic director Debbie Turner has anything to do with it, they’ll be there for the next 20.
