Films That
Entertain & Inform

The Sydney South African Film Festival is proud to present features and documentaries that explore the culture, history and politics of South Africa – films that entertain and inform.

SSAFF is a non-profit event organized entirely by volunteers. All proceeds from the festival go to supporting the important educational development work Education without Borders has been doing in South Africa since 2002.

Keep up to date

The Sydney South African Film Festival (SSAFF) at Event Cinemas, Bondi Junction, had a remarkable inaugural festival in May 2019. And now, propelled by this success, the SSAFF is heading for its 2nd year with the dates 7th – 17th May 2020.

An immersive experience for cinema attendees, each screening was carefully orchestrated to complement the particular film shown. The funds raised for EwB exceeded all expectations.

We are extremely thankful to all of our sponsors and those that were involved and that attended the inaugural event.

We will soon be launching the 2020 SSAFF program!
