Event Description



The Jozi Film Festival is an annual event that showcases the latest films made by South African and international filmmakers in one of Africa’s most vibrant cities – Johannesburg. The Jozi Film Festival 2019 will highlight the very best in filmmaking, presenting a multi-genre slate of films from emerging and established filmmakers, exploring a broad range of topics that affect our communities and stir our hearts and minds.


The Jozi Film Festival was initially created to provide a platform for local filmmakers in Johannesburg, and to develop an audience for South African films. While still prioritizing local film, JFF now accept films from around the world – features, short films, documentaries and student films. We are the longest running multi-genre festival in the City of Gold and our motto remains the same from Day One: We Love Jozi. We Love Film.







Friday, 4 October. 7:30pm.




Someone to Blame – The Ahmed Timol Inquest


Dir. Enver Samuel


Documentary || 54mins || South Africa


This riveting documentary weaves a compelling narrative that draws on the 2017 re-opening of the inquiry on the untimely death and brutal murder of the young Ahmed Timol in 1971. The young activist died at the hands of the security police at the John Vorster Police Station in downtown Johannesburg, framed by the police as a suicide at the time.


The film follows on from Indians Can’t Fly (2015), a previous Enver Samuel documentary that deals with Timol’s life, his detention and his death.
