The past weekend was a big one for the South African music industry. Making strides in elevating the landscape and setting the bar high for the looming decade, both Cassper Nyovest and Black Coffee continued their concerts.

On both days, South African DJ Black Coffee delivered his sophomore Music Is King shows in Johannesburg and Durban.

In Rustenberg, Cassper Nyovest took his annual Fill Up concert to Royal Bafokeng stadium, marking the first time he’s taken on a stadium in his native town. The 5th instalment of Nyovest’s historic show took place on Sunday.

The rapper unleashed an energetic performance of his powered catalogue, which caught fire when his fist megahit, Doc Shebeleza, helped him to skyrocket to the top of the charts earlier this decade. That was the beginning of one of the South African music industry’s biggest music careers of all time, a Cassper Nyovest who would continue to break records.

Consistent with his reputation as one of South Africa’s best live performers, Cassper Nyovest made sure fans leave with a night they will never forget. He delivered a world class show where the quality of production, choreography, sound, design all functioned to produce a night to remember.

The rapper kept fans mesmerised by his multiple outfit changes, a few which came with different hair colours.

Mr. Tsibip executed no less than three hair changes from blonde to orange to pink.

Apart from the hair and custom made wardrobe, some of the show’s biggest highlights included a performance with his father, a tribute to the late HHP, as well as action call for men to do better as he spoke against gender-based violence and so much more.

Happening just a day before his 29th birthday, the shindig gave the rapper all the more reason to celebrate. “I couldn’t have asked for a better homecoming”, he said in a press statement.  “The best birthday present ever! We’re doing it again next year.”

Africa Rising Film Festival Goes Virtual For 2020 Edition

Themes include GBV and Black Lives Matter this year.

Published

on

Much like other events in the creative space and elsewhere, this year’s Africa Rising International Film Festival will be hosting its 3rd instalment virtually. This year’s festival is scheduled to run from November 27th through 29th.

The virtual edition will include a couple of live experiences. With ARIFF’s mission centred around using film to create awareness and contribute urgent conversations, the festival will be highlighting gender-based violence and Black Lives Matter as part of tackling unjust systems and discourses that underlie the plight of so many.

ARIFF will develop and screen 16 short films and documentaries under the 2020 theme its gender-based violence and equality project dubbed the ARIFF Film for Change: GBV and Equality.

In a press statement seen by QuenchSA, the festival has expressed that the ” main objective of the project is to drive conversation, raise awareness of gender-based violence and equality through the power of cinema and storytelling to push for real change and accountability.”

The short films and documentaries will form part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Women and Children Abuse. The program will also be integrated to the Africa Rising International Film Festival’s training program ARIFF Film Institute where ARIFF mentors over 200 young creatives through Directing, Producing, Scriptwriting, Acting, and technical and creative aspect of filmmaking.

Women, youth, queer community, and people living with disabilities will continue to take centre stage at this year’s Festival.  As we celebrate their work, we also bring attention to the importance of continuing to support these groups in the film industry, to ensure these moments of celebration keep happening. Thematically as ARIFF we want to ensure that all voices left in the shadows are given a spotlight. We are excited about this instalment of the festival as we tackle difficult conversations that continue to erode our society. We will honour those who have lost their lives to both GBV and COVID19 – Lala Tuku

The commissioning process opened on Thursday, 05th November 2020, for emerging Filmmakers, with Scriptwriters and Directors from previously disadvantaged backgrounds within the ages of 18 to 35 with a filmmaking qualification or a year’s worth of directing experience also invited to participate in the development process. Experienced mentors will oversee the commissioned work while also mentoring and upskilling the participants.

The year 2020 will never be forgotten, we have had to all adjust and introspect on what is crucial. As a festival we have had to assess and evaluate how we engage with audiences leading from supporting purpose led content and initiatives. During this time we have explored the lengths of the digital space which has brought the world closer, with Film for Change we will share meaningful content to be seen beyond our borders using digital platforms – Ayanda Sithebe.

The three-day Africa Rising International Film Festival’s 2020 virtual edition programme also includes African and international film screenings/premiers, Round Tables, Masterclasses, SWIFT Hour, ARIFF Film Child, and more. The full African and International film screenings programme will be released closer to the time.

Call for Submissions for the Jozi Film Festival

Published

2019_filmmakers at The Bioscope_DamonBerry_Sisanda Henna_ThabisoChristopher

Joburg’s longest running multi-genre film festival has opened its call for 2020 submissions.

Filmmakers are being invited to submit their works for the year’s upcoming prestigious shindig, which is aimed at showcasing exceptional works produced by African filmmakers.

Now in its ninth year, the festival is slated to take place over 4 days from 17 – 20 September 2020 at various venues across the city (Covid-19 willing!), showcasing local and international feature films, short fiction and documentaries.

Submissions are open until 15 May, with a late deadline of 5 June All entries must be submitted via FilmFreeway

The prestigious show is 100% independent.

The fact that they do not curate the festival, but rather rely on submissions to authentically reflect the creative landscape of the South African film industry, is part of the reason why the festival matters so much for elevating the space.

Therein lies the magic. An emerging filmmaker can easily have their work screened alongside distinguished industry incumbents like Akin Omotoso. Or Oliver Schmitz.

“We feel it is important to support both upcoming talent and established filmmakers, and to afford all entrants an equal chance of being screened”, the festival explains.

The Jozi Film Festival is held at various locations around Johannesburg annually in late September/early October, over a four day period. Over the last eight years, their cornerstone has been Bioscope Independent Cinema in Maboneng.

Each year kicks of with a premiere night, and then the festival culminates in an awards night where the best films in each

category are recognised. The categories are; Best Feature Film, Best Feature Length Documentary, Best Short Documentary, Best Short Fiction, Best Student Film, Best Director and Best Young Director. Awards are given out to both local and international films in most of these categories.

Through their partnership with Discovery Networks, the Jozi Film Festival continue affording African filmmakers the opportunity for exposure through the ‘Don’t Stop Wondering’ Award.
