Jozi Film Festival Discovery Competition

SUBMISSIONS CLOSE 28 MAY 2018 

JOHANNESBURG’S LONGEST-RUNNING MULTI-GENRE FILM FESTIVAL

The longest-running multi-genre film festival in the City of Gold is now in its seventh year!

Submissions for the seventh annual Jozi Film Festival (JFF) open 19 February 2018 and close 28 May 2018. As always, JFF is calling for feature films, short fiction films, documentaries (both short and long) as well as student films, from South Africa and internationally.

The Jozi Film Festival is thrilled to be partnering for a second year with Discovery Channel to bring you the "Don’t Stop Wondering Award”  - a call for 2-5 minute documentaries from filmmakers across Africa which showcase and celebrate unique African stories and capture Discovery’s ethos of sparking curiosity.

The Jozi Film Festival began in 2012 and was initially created to provide a platform for local filmmakers, to reach audiences under serviced by traditional cinemas and to develop an audience for South African films. We began accepting entries from around the world in 2014 and are now firmly established as one of the sub-continent's leading film festivals. Our motto remains the same from Day One: We Love Jozi. We Love Film. The Jozi Film Festival is proudly independent, and a supporter of independent films.
