Now in its 23rd year, the Encounters South African International Documentary Festival returns with a celebration of the latest and greatest in African and international Documentary filmmaking, cementing its place as the premier documentary festival on the continent.
The festival once again screens ‘virtually everywhere’ for its 2021 edition. From 10 to 20 June, audiences see ten days of inspiring films, webinars, debates and Q&As, and meet directors locally and from around the globe.
Standouts from this year’s programme of South African films include a fascinating and little-known narrative of a unique and inspiring figure in South African history. See a full lineup of documentaries here.
While documentaries and short films are available online throughout the festival, some are screened at local theatres. View the full schedule here.
