ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Long regarded as a gracious host and destination of choice for filmmakers, the City of Cape Town invites you to join us at this The Cape Town International Film Market & Festival (CTIFMF) – formerly known as the Cape Town & Winelands International Film Festival that is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a brand new look and location.

The CTIFMF offers a valuable opportunity to consolidate existing alliances between local filmmakers and our international production treaty partners, and to explore opportunities for exciting new collaborative ventures with our friends from around the world.

Key industry players will gather together to revive old friendships, forge new partnerships and showcase their talent against the unique backdrop of this year’s venue, the scenic quaysides and wharfs of the iconic V&A Waterfront.

The CTIFMF is a collaborative effort by the City of Cape Town, WESGRO and the festival board to create a world class event that not only celebrates the art of film, but also presents an active trading platform for local and international industry stakeholders to trade at.

The vision of the CTIFMF is to become the Cannes of Africa. And with the new festival venue being the iconic V&A Waterfront, we are already halfway there!

The V&A precinct along with strategic locations in the CBD and historically underserved communities will be transformed into a hub of big screen magic! Public screenings, movie premiers and amazing competitions will transform Cape Town into the proverbial theatre of life.
