MADE IN SA COMPETITION
Cape Town is the proud host to the fourth Made in South Africa competition this year. The battle for space on an extremely limited programme was hard fought, with an international selection panel selecting just 14 films into SA competition. The line up includes fiction, documentary and experimental films and will screen over two programme blocks as a festival highlight in both Cape Town and Stellenbosch.
