The Encounters South African International Documentary Festival presents offers a wide-ranging selection of local and international nonfiction experiences. Over 70 features and shorts, ranging from the urgently political to the performance of the personal, are selected. These films reflect and refract the current state of the world, at times challenging documentary orthodoxies, always offering different visions of this uncertain time.
2019 dates and times to be confirmed.
“The annual Encounters Film Festival provides a platform for local and international filmmakers to showcase their work in Cape Town and Johannesburg.” Read Andra le Roux-Kemp’s review of the Encounters Documentary Festival.
