Submissions for the 3rd Annual Jozi Film Festival (JFF) are open and will be accepted
until 18 October 2013.
The festival takes place from 21 to 23 February 2014, and will once again highlight the
best in filmmaking in the heart of Johannesburg, presenting a multi-genre of films from
emerging and established filmmakers.
Competition categories include:
• Best Feature Film
• Best Feature Documentary Film
• Best Animated Film
• Best Fiction Short
• Best Documentary Short
• Best Student Film
• Audience Choice Award
• Best Mobile Phone Film
Prizes will be offered to the winners.
Stories about Jozi and the city’s habitants, and films made by local filmmakers, will be
screened over a three-day period at several venues throughout Johannesburg, including
The Bioscope Independent Cinema in the Maboneng precinct in the Jo’burg CBD.
To resonate with audiences and complement the line-up of local films, several
international films will screen.
The festival also offers Q&A sessions with filmmakers in attendance; as well as
workshops and seminars.
The JFF’s Awards Ceremony on 23 February 2014 will wrap up the proceedings.
A non-profit organisation dedicated to enriching local culture, the JFF supports the city’s
vibrant film community, and reaches new audiences that don’t traditionally attend film
festivals through the powerful language of film.
