Afridocs on [ED] broadcasts live from DIFF 2015

For the third year running, AfriDocs on channel [ED] will bring the best of the Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) to TV screens across sub-Saharan Africa. With unprecedented access to the films and filmmakers of DIFF 2016, AfriDocs will be presenting a week of special programming that includes some of the highlights of this year’s festival, including the opening night film, The Journeymen.

From 21 to 25 June, AfriDocs on [ED] (DStv channel 190 and GOtv channel 65), will screen three top films from DIFF daily with a full day of repeats on 26 June and a daily live broadcast from the festival in Durban from 16h00 that will include interviews with top filmmakers and industry experts.

The week of screenings includes some of the world’s newest documentaries such as Senegal’s The Revolution Won’t be Televised, Sweden’s Martha & Niki, the international tale of the arms-world intrigue based on Andrew Feinstein’s book, Shadow World and the collectively-made film Soweto, Times of Wrath, by a group of six Sowetan filmmakers, that gives a deep insight into contemporary Soweto – and the defiant pulse of South Africa.

Station Manager for [ED], Roberto Carletti said, “By broadcasting live from the Durban International Film Festival the channel helps play an important role in raising the status of African film makers. We’re also excited to be able to offer our viewers prime new documentary content, from AfriDocs.”
