MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Jozi Film Festival is a non-profit organisation in Johannesburg, South Africa dedicated to enriching local culture, supporting the city’s vibrant film community, and reaching new audiences through the powerful language of film.




ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Now the first festival on the yearly South African film festival calendar, the Jozi Film Festival is an annual event that showcases the latest films made by South African and international filmmakers in one of Africa's most vibrant cities - Johannesburg.

The Third Annual Jozi Film Festival, taking place 21-23 February 2014, will highlight the very best in filmmaking, presenting a multi-genre slate of films from emerging and established filmmakers, exploring a broad range of topics that affect our communities and stir our hearts and minds. An exciting line up of South African and international films will be screened over a three-day period at several venues throughout the city, including The Bioscope Independent Cinema in the heart of Johannesburg.

The festival will also offer provocative Q&A sessions with the filmmakers in attendance, as well as workshops and networking events. Wrapping up the festival will be our exciting Awards Ceremony on February 23, 2014.

The regular submission deadline is October 18, 2013, so don't delay!

Competition categories include: Best Feature Film, Best Feature Documentary Film, Best Animated Film, Best Fiction Short, Best Documentary Short, Best Student Film, Audience Choice Award, and Best Mobile Phone Film! Prizes will be offered to the winners.
