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.


Sunday 6 October. 11am.

Total Running Time: 1hr15 mins

NomvulaAdvik Beni, Jason Maselle (14:39)

Nomvula is South Africa’s first ever creature film. While trying to cope with the sudden and recent loss of her mother, Nomvula takes refuge in establishing a friendship with a strange creature that has taken shelter in the industrial landscape of South Africa. Nomvula is determined to help the creature as a means to cope with her own alienation, however she fails to realise that the journey she is about to take will change her life forever.

Mej. Twisfontein – Regardt Visser (24:00)

A documentary crew follows three girls and their mothers as they prepare to compete in a beauty pageant in the remote town of Twisfontein.

R.E.M. – Cara Leane Spence (12:00)

A grief-stricken father, Dehan, relives his memories of his late wife, Lena, through the use of a high-tech device (the REM), that lets Dehan control his dreams. This unhealthy obsession makes it difficult for Dehan to overcome his grief and restore his relationship with his son, Erich.

Beyond Repair – Chadlee Skrikker (12:00)

In Beyond Repair, a gay 17-year-old named Simon is forced to live with his brother Falkner, who runs a cult-like group that tries to force men into living heterosexual lives. Falkner uses violence and threats but also his love for his younger brother to manipulate Simon into rejecting his identity and becoming like him.

Sunset Exodus – Dylan Brokensha (12:00)

Sunset Exodus is an eye-opening experience, introducing you to a world where the only type of connection shared is touch and sound. The film follows Lilitha, a highly spiritual woman, whose encounter with death takes her on an out-of-this-world journey of acceptance and relinquishment.
