Tri continental Film Festival this week


The Cape Town edition of the 9th Tri Continental Film Festival (TCFF) runs at the V&A Waterfront Ster Kinekor Cinema Nouveau in Cape Town from 16 to 23 September, with support from the Cape Film Commission.

South Africa’s only dedicated human rights film event, TCFF comprises films that promote democratisation, deepens understanding, and affords those marginalised a substantive voice, proving to be more vital than ever in our rapidly changing world. TCFF has played a significant role in creating a sustainable and continually growing audience for
social justice cinema over the past nine years.

The selection of films presented this year is the result of rigorous curation of over 500 entries. These works speak directly to the pressing concerns of our world and the power of documentary and fiction to relay these concerns in a compelling and powerful manner.

“We are proud to present a crop of excellent films which speak directly to this issue and will continue to do so in the coming years so we can play our own small part in building a movement to halt the forward march towards the end of humanity as we know it,’ says Rehad Desai, the festival director.
