LAUNCH OF KWACINEMA (article first published : 2007-03-25)

As part of the re-structuring of the quaint Kwasuka theatre in Greyville Durban, a film initiative has been launched – aptly named KwaCinema – which will have its first weekend screenings from April 12 to 15.

Karen Logan and Neil Coppen head up the film division (KwaCinema) and their mission is to create a meeting place whereby Durban film-makers and film enthusiasts will be able to screen and discuss cinema and have a forum to experiment with locally made film.

The division aims at organising regular film festivals centred on diverse filmic mediums such as animation, documentary, music video, shorts, full length, arthouse, experimental as well as commissioning local film initiatives. To this end, they are planning “The One Minute Fixed Frame Film Festival” for the near future. The organisers are currently searching for interested parties to climb a board and assist in utilising this space and opportunity.

The KwaCinema launch will be used as an opportunity to meet members of the community as well as discuss the future of the initiative. Films screened over this weekend will be centred on the documentary - local and international. If you have a project or suggestion you wish to include in the program please let us know. This is a communal effort and its success depends entirely on the film community’s submissions and suggestions,” says Neil.
