Molo Mollo x Durban International Film Festival
South Africa’s longest-running film festival - and the largest film festival on the African continent - the Durban International Film Festival generally runs across 12 days towards the end of July, presenting over 180 screenings of current films from around the world, with a strong focus on South African and African cinema. Screenings take place throughout Durban, its surrounding township areas, and for the first time ever, at Molo Mollo in Pretoria Central.
Molo Mollo in collaboration with DIFF will be hosting a one-night-only satellite event of the acclaimed film festival in Pretoria. Hosted on the rooftop of Molo Mollo House and set against the Pretoria cityscape, the satellite event will feature screenings of some of the top African short films from this year’s festival.
The films selected for the event are: 2 Grams and a Sunrise by Malusi S Bengu, starring Nomzamo Mbatha (South Africa)
A Kalabanda Ate My Homework by Raymond Malinga (Uganda)
Faire-part by Anne Reijniers, Nizar Saleh, Paul Shemisi & Rob Jacobs (Democratic Republic of Congo, Belgium)
Intense Practice to Improve Performance by Yasser Shafiey (Egypt)
Seeking Giants by Fidel Tshivhasa (South Africa)
Molo Mollo has been hosting inner-city rooftop cinema experiences for over three years and offers the perfect mix of local and international films. This collaboration with the Durban International Film Festival will be the first in a long line of upcoming events aimed at catering for Gauteng’s lovers of film who can’t travel to film festivals around the country.
