Mission / description What sets us apart from the many other film festivals world-wide is our distinctive approach to film programming, committed celebrity guests and friendly leisurely pace. You will have plenty of time to enjoy the wine country's amenities during the festival. The Festival screenings is held at V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.

Some nights you might glimpse a celebrity guest mingling informally with festival goers. Imagine yourself in South Africa's world famous vacation spot Cape Town, where locals and visitors alike converge during South Africa's biggest celebration of world cinema.

Set in Cape Town home to museums and galleries as well as many student cafes and restaurants, all buzzing with film buffs. You are sitting under the stars in an open air theater venue, sipping good wine, savoring seasonal South African cuisine, and socializing with new and old friends.
