Out in Africa Film Festival - Opening Night and Related Festival Parties

JHB - Nu Metro, Montecasino - 3rd to 13th September
CT - Nu Metro, V&A Waterfront - 10th to 20th September

For the first time in a long time, Opening Night tickets are being sold as a fund raising drive – R100 per ticket. Opening night in Jozi is on 3rd September at Nu Metro, Montecasino and in CT on 10th September at Nu Metro, V&A Waterfront. We are delighted that Pieter-Dirk Uys will be our Speaker at both these events. The festival opens with the 2007 Spanish feature Spinnin' (6 Billion Different People) by Eusebio Pastrana. This is the Spaniards at their wacky best – an exuberant award winning film set in Madrid.


We have two parties for you - one pre-Festival (hosted by V2 Experience) and one end of Festival (hosted by Citrus Lounge and Clique Events). Details below:

V2 says Express Yourself this time: Come as your Favourite Celebrity or your Favourite Movie Star or just as you - a prize will be given to those who make the effort to look different. This event is inspired by a book by Russel Simmons "DO YOU" - Russell Simmons is one of the “Top 25 Most Influential People of the Past 25 Years” - a “hip-hop pioneer” - his groundbreaking vision has influenced music, fashion, finance, television and film, as well as the face of modern philanthropy. Russell Simmons has been instrumental in bringing the powerful influence of hip-hop culture to every facet of business and media since its inception in the late 1970s. From producing and/or managing such early hip-hop artists as Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, Whodini and the Beastie Boys to signing seminal luminaries like Jay Z, Foxy Brown and Ludacris, Simmons’ groundbreaking vision was crystallized with partner Rick Rubin in the creation of the seminal Def Jam Recordings in 1984
