Eco Film Festival Cape Town 2016

The annual South African Eco Film Festival brings to the foray the best local and international eco documentaries.  Running from 31 March to 3 April 2016, South African audiences will be treated to world-class programme of beautifully shot and engaging short and feature-length films that explore a spectrum of environmentally-relevant topics. In Cape Town, these screenings are due to take place at the Labia Theatre.

The programme  features roughly 25 documentaries, some of which have never been disclosed to South African audiences. The focus of the 2015 Eco Film festival centered around questions that prevail in modern society-  aiming to find viable remedies to our children's fixation on electronic gadgets, the dangers of harmful chemical substances on our bodies, and other pertinent issues needing to be addressed. 

Members of the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film, which will be decorated with the Silver Tree Audience Choice Award.

The 2015 festival saw an exciting new addition for Cape Town and Eastern Cape audiences, the Eco Kids Film Initiative (EKFI). It featured films made for – and in some cases even by – children. These screenings were aimed at children aged 3 to 6, 7 to 11 and 12 to 17. The selected films include a mix of documentary and narrative type films, both live-action and animated.

The line up for the 2016 edition has yet to be disclosed, watch this space!

For each to the SA Eco Film Festival ticket sold, R5 will be donated to Greenpop, the Cape Town based tree-planting organisation

All films at the Labia Theatre will be followed by an informal audience discussion or Q&A session.
