Design Indaba FilmFest coming soon

One rooftop, 13 creative film premieres; an event not to be missed.

Design Indaba FilmFest 2013 will once again treat Cape Town audiences to a world-class feature and documentary film festival highlighting the power of creativity.

We’ve got the essential ingredients for the perfect summer's evening in Cape Town and it goes something like this: A rooftop cinema with Table Mountain as the backdrop, sundowners, popcorn and a screening of some of the world’s foremost feature films and documentaries on design, art, creativity and innovation. 

It’s called Design Indaba FilmFest, and the best part is that it is happening every evening from 17 February to 3 March 2013, as the prelude to Design Indaba. 

The Bank in Cape Town’s trendy new Fringe District is where it’s all happening, a venue that in itself promises to delight creative enthusiasts. 

A new film will be screened every evening at 20:30, for just R35 a ticket. Doors open at 19:30 so be sure to arrive early, to get a drink and popcorn, and soak up both the view and the atmosphere before settling in to enjoy the film. 

Design Indaba FilmFest is presented in association with DStv and supported by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF). 

Fashion, music, dance, art and more, the selection of films on the FilmFest programme ensures that there is something of interest for everyone. 

A must-see on the programme is Big Easy Express, which documents the extraordinary musical journey of folk rock and indie rock bands Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros as they depart on a “tour of dreams” on a train across America.

Morgan Spurlock’s latest offering, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, travels with five attendees descending on the comic-lover's biggest  annual pop culture event. 

Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present follows the fearless and outrageous quest of Abramović as she transforms herself into a live form of art, challenging the audience and pushing herself beyond various limits.
