2015 Tri-Continental Film Festival

In 2015, TCFF will take place as a travelling film festival. Moving from city to city over a four-month period from August, the social impact films in this year’s selection will be reaching new audiences. In 2015 the festival will travel to Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Grahamstown, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria and  Mbombela.


What is important about a documentary that seeks to make social impact? Documentaries are first and foremost stories. They provide those moments in art when individual human stories intersect with social contradiction and ethical struggle; the individual viewer watches from a place of freedom and is prompted to think about how things might be different in the future. The social impact documentary takes things further. It prompts the individual to think about their role in making that difference. Social Impact documentaries seek to make active participants of us all, and more. They seek to open hearts and once opened, to direct our consciousness towards activating social change.
