With 106 screenings taking place between the two Ster-Kinekor venues, this year’s festival is certain to make a big impact in Kwazulu Natal!
Several themes will be present throughout the festival putting Africa in the Spotlight – with films such as Elelwani by Ntshavheni wa Luruli starring Florence Masebe, which will be opening the festival as well as the delightful story of animal kingdom ubuntu in the pioneering 3D animation Adventures in Zambezia, which will close the Durban International Film Festival. Contemporary European films will also showcase with films such as Le Havre by Aki Kaurusmäki and Michael Glawogger’s Whore’s Glory from Austria. There will be a focus on French Film – such as the powerful biopic on Burmese leader Aung San Sui Kyi, The Lady. Of special mention is a piece by Global Cinema – which brings the celebrated Beasts of the Southern Wild directed by Benh Zeitlin. Eco-issues will also be explored in films such as Bitter Seeds and LoveMEATender. Each theme highlights film makers’ talents and passion in comedies, documentaries, drama and story-telling.
