The AFDA Cape Town 2020 honours graduation film, “Four Walls and a Roof”, directed by Keelan Nieuwstadt and the AFDA Johannesburg 2020 honours graduation film, “Quite on Set”, directed by Jessica Teixeira, have been selected as finalist at the Flatness Film Awards in the Best Long Short-Fiction film category.

The films will be in competition from the 20 June 2021 with 14 other films from countries all over the world including the United States, India, Brazil, France and Hong Kong.

The Flatness Film Awards is an international independent film festival, committed to sharing great stories from both new and established international and domestic filmmakers from the world of independent cinema.

Thousands of films are made every year, but very few of these films meet with the audience and are rewarded. One of the features that makes Flatness festival different is that it will bring your film to audiences from many countries.

Flatness select and award films every season and provide further marketing, distribution and online screening platforms for the award winners through their partners in media. The aim is to draw wider attention to valuable filmmakers, and to provide an independent platform for appreciative and informed discussion of their work with a unique vision.

Flatness is screening films from around the world and honouring emerging filmmakers from every languages, genders, religious, ethnic and cultural perspective. There are no restrictions of any kind, except for duration.

Winners will be chosen by an international jury and receive Winning-Category Laurels and Certificates.

Congratulations to the cast and crew!!!
