South African Film Festival

The South African Film Festival is proud to showcase a diverse range of films made by some of the most promising filmmakers in South Africa who have achieved recognition both locally and internationally.

Last year’s program focused on showcasing inspiring and eye-opening stories that highlight the experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community, promoting greater visibility and representation in the film industry.

SAFF’s vision for the future builds on the festival’s role in generating social and economic capital via Sydney and Melbourne cinema screenings.

Complementing SAFF’s highly anticipated festival program is SAFF’s renowned industry program, which includes an investment fund, Education without Borders. More than just a celebration of cinematic art, SAFF is a festival with a conscience!

All profits from the festival go to supporting the vital work of Education without Borders (EwB), a not-for-profit that is changing the lives of disadvantaged and at-risk youth in South Africa’s Western Cape.

The inaugural Sydney South African Film Festival was held in cinemas at Bondi Junction in 2019. In May 2020, in response to COVID-19, the festival went online Australia-wide and was broadened to include an on-demand program.

In 2021, the film festival expanded with a hybrid program with in-cinema and online screenings. Committed to bringing South African cinema to Australia and extending internationally to include New Zealand, they rebranded as the South African Film Festival.
