The AFDA third year and honours students from the Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Gqeberha campuses have once again pulled out all the stops this year at the annual AFDA Graduation Festival held recently.
The Motion Picture Medium students very successfully screened their films, TV pilots and documentaries to sold out cinemas. The Live Performance students acted out their theatre plays and sang to the rafters to delighted audiences. The Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship students pitched their monetised tech-driven businesses to industry experts and gobsmacked public and for the first time, the genesis group of third year Creative Writing students wowed the critics panel and public with their short stories, screenplays and stage productions.
If you missed the festival, there is no need to panic. AFDA students have got your back. From 1 December 2023 you can binge watch over 75 AFDA third and honours films, TV pilots and documentaries from the comfort of your couch.
