Postponement of Joburg Film Festival 2017


The Joburg Film Festival (JFF) has announced that it will be postponing its second showcase that was scheduled to take place from 20 to 28 October 2017.

According to JFF director, Tim Mangwedi, the curatorial team took the decision to postpone this event in order to create a self-sustaining entity. “As an event primarily supported by the City of Joburg, the closure of the City’s Film Office directly impacted the festival,” said Mangwedi.

“With the support of all the relevant role-players, we continue to be committed to providing an exciting and progressive platform where South African and African excellence in cinematography can be showcased and rewarded,” he added.

Sincere apologies are conveyed to the entire film fraternity, partners and sponsors. The tentative dates set for the Joburg Film Festival are 26 October to 3 November 2018. All information portals shall remain open in the meantime.
