The film festival’s mission is simply to raise awareness, through the amazing medium of documentary film, of the many pressing environmental issues the planet is facing, and the solutions people are taking to solve them. We hope you will be informed, inspired, challenged, uplifted and entertained by this year’s Festival offerings.



Boo! began in 1997 in the backstreets of dirty Brixton, Johannesburg, South Africa, when it’s first members, Ampie Omo, Chris Chameleon and Leon Retief conspired to make music that would go against most of the conventional wisdom of the time. Having considered names like “Yellow Lilo” and “Die Wit Ding Wat in Die Pad Le”, it was Chris’ dream of playing to the sound of a stadium boo-ing the band that eventually won out.


Nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at this year's Academy Awards, LOVING VINCENT is the world''s first fully painted feature film. Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, produced by Poland's BreakThru Films and UK'S Trademark Films. 

The Film brings the painting of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film are an oil painting hand painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from across the world to the Loving Vincent Studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production.

Hierdie talentvolle kunstenaar, wat homself beskryf as skaam en teruggetrokke, luister graag na sinvolle musiek en beskou dit as ’n seën om elke dag te kan doen waarvoor hy lief is en dit nog boonop met sy vrou te kan deel. Ruhan glo dat musiek ’n universele taal praat en het groot bewondering vir die feit dat Deon, na al die jare in die bedryf, nog kan opgewonde raak oor nuwe klanke.

“Ek leer vreeslik baie by my vennoot. Ek het nog min mense teëgekom wat so passievol is oor musiek en sy instrument en dít is aansteeklik.
