The Cape Town International Film Market and Festival 2018
The Cape Town International Film Market and Festival (CTIFMF) is back this year to showcase and transform South Africa’s film industry. Running from the 9 - 19 of October, the festival aims to be a platform to create, collaborate, and celebrate the exciting and often untapped potential of this diverse industry. The CTIFMF will be incorporating a host of key initiatives and projects aimed at the local and Pan-African film industries, film lovers across the city, as well as emerging and new audiences from across Africa and beyond.

 
CTIFMF executive chairman Rafiq Samsodien has the following to say of this year’s festival; “We are leading the charge to re-build this industry from the bottom up. This year will see the birth of an entirely new way of collaborating and working towards a common goal for a sustainable industry.  So let’s start by building meaningful partnerships that enable and empower the spirit of filmmaking and the filmmakers.” 

 
CTIFMF 2018 will start on Tuesday, 9th October at Cape Town’s Artscape. Festival screenings are open to the public and will run from 10 – 19 October at various cinemas within the V&A Waterfront, including free family-friendly films at the Amphitheatre. The program is a cinematic feast with some 120 world-class films on show to the public, festival delegates and the jury. The meticulously curated selection will include a significant amount of African content amongst the independent feature films, short films and documentaries on show. Particular focus areas are New Voices (first-time feature directors), Arabian Nights, That’s So Gay (new LGBQTI releases), Eco Cinema & Cinema of Conscience.  

Other highlights include a Works in Progress programme, a Book Adaptations programme and an Audience Development workshop as well as work cafés, keynote speeches, panel discussions and social networking opportunities.
