Fri 7 May 2021 to Mon 24 May 2021

The South African Film Festival (SAFF) presents an engaging program of nine documentaries, five features and two short films when it returns in 2021, May 12 to 24. All ticket proceeds will go to supporting the Education without Borders programs that assist young South Africans in some of the country's most disadvantaged communities.

The festival will screen to online audiences across Australia and New Zealand with special closing night in-cinema screenings in Sydney and Melbourne.

The films reflect South Africa's diverse population, rich tradition of struggle for democracy and equality, complex political and economic reality.

Festival Director Claire Jankelson said:

"South Africa produces some of the richest stories for cinema the world over. Much like the country itself, the films that come from South Africa are all at once challenging, bold, beautiful and heartwarming. This year's line-up presents an exciting mix of daring narratives, striking cinematography and deep explorations into South African culture and community."
