Four Corners to screen at UK film tour


South African film Four Corners has been invited to screen at the “South Africa at 20’ film tour in the UK. The tour – supported by the BFI Programming Development Fund and the SA-UK Seasons – aims to draw attention to the 20th anniversary of democracy in South Africa.

Four Corners will screen alongside Life Above All and Miners Shot Down in a section titled “Post-Apartheid Challenges’ at cinemas across the UK, in an attempt to raise the profile of African cinema in the UK and to build UK-African audiences.

The tour will launch in London early this October and will continue to run until February 2015. Ian Gabriel, director of Four Corners, will be joining the UK tour to participate in a host of Q&A sessions. The screenings will be complemented by educational and outreach programmes consisting of school and pop-up screenings.

Four Corners has also been selected to compete at The Santa Fe Film Festival USA and The Bahamas International Film Festival in the Best Foreign Film and Best Feature Film categories at both festivals.
