RapidLion

The South African International Film Festival.

About

The South African International Film Festival, RapidLion, is where all filmmakers from Africa, the African diaspora and BRICS countries will showcase their best work.

It's a great chance to enjoy some of the best after-parties ever hosted in the film fraternity, meet some of the best filmmakers that ever lived, learn from them if you participate, and leave the festival a better, more determined filmmaker than ever before.

At RapidLion, the experienced will converge with the upcoming and together find ways to lead each other towards the creation of even more magical cinema.
