South Africa’s Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) invites filmmakers from across the world to submit their Short, Documentary or Feature Fiction films to screen in the festival July 19-29, 2018.
The organisers of DIFF say only films completed in 2017 and 2018 will be considered and that all submissions must be entered via their online Visitor Page at vp.eventival.eu/cca/diff2018/. The deadline for all entries (short films, documentaries and feature fiction films), including delivery of screeners, is February 28, 2018.
Centre for Creative Arts (CCA) of the University of KwaZulu-Natal who, in partnerships with the Durban Film Office, eThekwini Municipality, National Film and Video Foundation, KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission, organise the 39th edition of the festival, say DIFF is a premier platform for the launch of African films and a key gateway to the African film industry.
CCA says it screens cutting-edge cinema from around the world, with special focus on African films, in a range of diverse venues in and around the city of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa.
