Celebrating its 5th year, The South African Film Festival (SAFF) is more than just a celebration of cinematic art, it is a festival with a conscience. Held from the 4th-31st May across Australia and New Zealand, net proceeds from the hybrid festival support NFP, Education Without Borders (EWB). EWB has been providing life-changing educational programs for students from under-resourced and socially disadvantaged communities in the Western Cape of South Africa since 2002.

Showcasing the very best of contemporary South African film to antipodean audiences, the hybrid festival is filled with a selection of carefully curated films presented through in-cinema screenings and on their online platform.

Catering to various interests and tastes, there is a film for everyone. Wishing for some escapist entertainment? Get the popcorn ready! Want to see diversity celebrated? Look no further!

From hard-hitting documentaries to heart-warming short films, blockbuster features to personal stories – this year’s films give audiences unique insight into the creativity, strength and richness of South African cultures and languages.

In cinema screenings: 4th to 11th May
Online festival: 11th to 31st May
