When: 21st - 31st July 2011
Where: Durban, South Africa
South Africa’s longest-running film festival, the Durban International Film Festival runs across 12 days at the end of July, presenting over 250 screenings of current films from around the world, with strong focus on South African and African cinema. Screenings take place throughout Durban including township areas where cinemas are non-existent.
I love this time of the year because I get to a diverse range of movies and also support local arts.
I type up this blog minutes before I leave to go and see my first movie of the film festival; The Tree of Life.
Some places showing movies for the festival include; main cinema's such as Gateway, Musgrave and Suncoast. As well as the likes of The Royal Hotel and the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
Some movies that I am realy looking forward to are: Three, Brownian and a Woody Allen movie to close the festival - Midnight in Paris.
