European Film Festival in South Africa

14 – 24 October 2021

The 8th edition of the European Film Festival in South Africa will present a select curation of 18 top new films from Europe.

With South Africa still facing a lot of uncertainty around COVID and following the success of last year’s online festival, the 8th edition will again be predominantly a virtual event. Please diarise the dates and join us for some excellent films free of charge!
