23RD DURBAN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (article first published : 2002-08-5)

Hot on the heels of co-ordinating the highly successful African Union Film Festival with the Film Resource Unit, the Centre for Creative Arts presents the 23rd Durban International Film Festival at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, University of Natal, from September 2 to 15.

The festival, supported by the National Film and Video Foundation, City of Durban, and the City of Rotterdam, will present a selection of over 100 films. Alternative genres and high-art films will share a platform with controversial and insightful documentaries, as well as mainstream films.

Music films, laugh-along comedies, dark thrillers, children’s films, short films, and animations are included in this dynamic melting-pot of the country’s longest running film festival. Once again the festival will host film-makers and industry-related personalities who will introduce films and present seminars and workshops designed to inspire developing talent.

The workshop programme and the extensive outreach screenings are all part of a long-term strategy designed to stimulate filmmakers, develop new audiences and broaden the appreciation of film in as inclusive a way as possible.

The primary screening venue for the festival is the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre with special showings at the Berea Cine Centre and outreach screenings in township areas, where cinema facilities are non-existent. Tickets are available at Computicket. For full programme details contact the Centre for Creative Arts at (031) 260-2506 or 260-1145 or visit www.und.ac.za/und/carts.
