Cape Winelands Film Festival

International film festival in Cape Town and Stellenbosch.

About

What sets apart this festival from the many other film festivals world-wide is the distinctive approach to film programming, committed celebrity guests and friendly leisurely pace. It is a competitive festival that highlights both the emerging and professional filmmaker, and serves as a catalyst for bringing writers and filmmakers together to collaborate on future productions. The Festival is held simultaneously in Cape Town and Stellenbosch and offers plenty of time to enjoy the wine country's amenities.

The programme is generally grouped into ten sections:

  • World Cinema,
  • Independent Films,
  • Arts in Film,
  • New Voices,
  • Music in Film,
  • Food on Film,
  • That’s So Gay (gay and lesbian releases),
  • Eco Cinema (eco-friendly films about people and our planet),
  • Films on Tolerance and Reconciliation and Acceptance of the OTHER,
  • Cinema of Conscience (films about social and political issues),
  • Special Programs (Retrospectives and Focuses).

In addition industry panels and networking events, Q & A discussions with filmmakers, arts and entertainment mixers at local venues are held throughout the 10 days.
