We’re confident that we’ve found something for everyone: whether you’re interested in fracking or industrial hemp production, genetic engineering or climate change, the fate of the world’s bees or organic food – we’ve got a documentary film for you!

BlackFishLowResAmong the 25 short and feature-length films we’ll be screening, are 10 movies that have never been seen in South Africa.

You can find details for all of the films, including theatrical trailers, here and the complete programme here.

We’ve chosen so many brilliant environmental documentaries to share with you, we’ve had to extend the length of the Festival by a day. The Festival will now run from Thursday the 27th until Monday the 31st of March, instead of the 30th as initially planned.
