Tshwane One City Film Festival celebrates African cinema


From 10 to 14 August 2014 the South African State Theatre in Pretoria will host the first edition of the Tshwane One City Film Festival, which aims to celebrate African cinema from around the world.

Basil Dube, festival founder and director says, “Our mission is to consolidate and further support the development of the South African film industry by creating a vibrant platform for networking and exhibition.’

Tanya Kersey, a US filmmaking career coach and founder of the Hollywood Black Film Festival, will be in attendance to deliver a series of workshops geared at local writers, producers and directors.

“We are indeed honoured to host such a high profile personality who has worked with some of the worlds’ most celebrated movie stars including Morgan Freeman, Angela Basset and Samuel L Jackson,’ says Dube.

Supported by the South African State Theatre, GMP Productions and the Federation of Pan-African Filmmakers, the festival will feature a line-up of African documentaries, short films, music videos, and feature films.
