The Joburg Film Festival (JFF) is strategically positioned to become Africa’s Premiere Film Festival through the curation and showcasing of African and International films whilst providing youth as well as aspirant and established filmmakers and industry professionals with various opportunities for development, training, skills transfer and networking.

Entering its SIXTH year, the annual film festival, which is presented by MultiChoice in association with Absa, has come into its own, establishing itself as an independent platform that not only tells Our stories but also showcases and rewards excellence in film. As South Africa celebrates 30 years of democracy, 2024 will be staged under the theme of inspiring storytellers and simultaneously celebrating the legends of the last 30 years behind and in front of the camera lenses.

The festival stands for innovation, excellence, and purposeful creativity and also seeks to grow and contribute to cultural tourism not only for the city of Joburg and the Gauteng province but for South Africa as a whole.

Congratulations to all the cast and crew!!!
