Daring, innovative and controversial films and filmmakers from around the world take the spotlight at the 31st Durban International Film Festival which takes place from 22 July 2010 to 1 August 2010.
So, if you did not know about it as yet - you have time to support and enjoy*
The festival programmers have scoured the globe for films that excite, thrill, raise awareness and provoke. These films will be presented in over 200 screenings at venues across Durban and in surrounding communities. Alongside the screenings of films, the festival offers an extensive workshop and seminar programme, as well as training and industry events.
The movies I have seen thus far are; Pepperminta, The Killer Inside Me, Dogtooth, The White Ribbon & Slovenian Girl. All but one have been excellent viewing material.
I am glad that we in Durban have access to such a film festival and would encourage all those who enjoy movies and the arts to go and see at least one movie.
