Shnit is now in its thirteenth year globally and is currently running in eight cities around the world. The sixth Cape Town edition opened on Wednesday evening with a carnival-themed party at The Castle and an outdoor screening of some of the best international films from the line-up.

Tickets are for selections of 6–10 films, and you can choose between international and South African film.
