Change is Here: SA Eco Film Fest 2017

The SA Eco Film Festival is back, bringing with it a string of world-class documentaries.

The 4th annual SA Eco Film Festival makes a welcome return to the Mother City from 23 to 30 March 2017, bringing thought-provoking and captivating short- and feature-length films to our screens.

Delving into a range of pressing and fascinating environmental topics, the films will mainly be screened at The Labia Theatre, Cape Town’s only independent cinema. View the full 2017 programme.

Engaging, entertaining, educational

Expect a world-class programme of beautifully told local and international stories, which will not only inspire you, they’ll also educate audience members on how to live more sustainably to ensure a brighter, healthier and, above all, more earth-friendly future for the entire planet.

Change is needed, change is key…

The theme of this year’s festival is #ChangeIsHere. Quite apt because, even though 2016 was trying (think record global temperature spikes and political curveballs, such as Donald Trump and Brexit), there were some amazing technological advances in driverless cars, as well as a falling costs in renewable power.

As such, the festival looks below the surface, exploring and identifying exactly which changes need to be made, and how our personal changes can positively affect our world.

Films aside

The 2017 line-up includes impactful films such as Seed; What Is Real; Freightened; and Normal Is Over, which will surely have you pausing for retrospection and looking at the world with fresh eyes. And there’ll also be a host of excellent guest speakers, interactive Q&A sessions with, and much more to look forward to.
