Theatre on the Square Proudly Hosts Joburg Film Festival for Third Consecutive Year
27th February – 3rd March
Theatre on the Square is thrilled to announce its hosting of the esteemed Joburg Film Festival for the third consecutive year.
The Joburg Film Festival (JFF), now in its sixth year, has firmly established itself as Africa’s premier film festival. Presented by MultiChoice in association with Absa, the festival serves as an independent platform dedicated to showcasing and rewarding excellence in cinema while celebrating the rich tapestry of African storytelling.
Under the theme of “Inspiring Storytellers” and in commemoration of South Africa’s 30 years of democracy, the 2024 edition of the festival promises to be a tribute to the legends behind and in front of the camera lenses. As we reflect on the journey of the past three decades, the Joburg Film Festival will shine a spotlight on the transformative power of storytelling and the remarkable individuals who have shaped our cinematic landscape.
With a commitment to innovation, excellence, and purposeful creativity, the festival aims to provide opportunities for development, training, skills transfer, and networking for youth, aspiring filmmakers, and industry professionals alike. Beyond its cultural significance, the Joburg Film Festival also seeks to contribute to cultural tourism, not only for Johannesburg and the Gauteng province but for South Africa as a whole.
Join us in celebrating the art of cinema at the Joburg Film Festival. Be part of this extraordinary cultural experience and witness the magic of storytelling unfold on the big screen.
