About To Launch


Only a few days to go, but so much left to share. . .

Friends, the second Sydney South African Film Festival is about to launch. This festival has been a innovative undertaking in a chaotic environment with covid, changes in dates and going into the online realm. We truly could not have done it without your support.

We have lined up incredible bonus content for you to view: see below.

We hope you enjoy the festival with those that you love and care about. Buy a gift ticket, treat your friends, aunties and uncles, watch and enjoy the films together.

We have tried to make it as easy as possible to enjoy the films with the full cinema experience and on your SmartTV or computer. There’s a step by step clear FAQ, as well as a 1300 number if you need technical help.
