Win Passes to the Vancouver South African Film Festival

Comments 10 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Vancouver South African Film Festival (“VSAFF”), now in its 6th year, is proud to present features and documentaries that explore the culture, history and politics of South Africa — films that entertain and inform.


Vancouver South African Film Festival

Where: Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, SFU Woodward’s
When: April 8th to April 10th, 2016
Tickets: Available online now. Purchase tickets for individual films, full festival passes, and gala tickets. The gala will take place April 8th at the Fluevog Shoes store in Gastown following a screening of The Shore Break.

The Shore Break

South Africa, with its diverse population, rich tradition of struggle for democracy and equity, and complex political and economic reality, has produced numerous outstanding films. The movies you will see at VSAFF are among those.

This year’s lineup includes the award-winning documentary The Shore Break, and the critically-acclaimed Afrikaans film Dis ek, Anna. Each year VSAFF screens also one film from an African country other than South Africa. Ethiopia is this year’s spotlight country with Difret, a Sundance award winner from producer Angelina Jolie.

VSAFF is a non-profit event organized entirely by volunteers, and all proceeds go to support the important education development work Education without Borders. To date, the VSAFF has raised $84,000 for EwB and organizers are confident that this is the most significant festival of South African films that happens outside of South Africa every year.
