EKURHULENI INTENATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The fourth Ekurhuleni International Film Festival takes place from 24 – 26 November 2022 at the Dumisani Masilela Theatre in Germiston. This is a partnership between the City, SABC and Rhythm Cycles.

The film industry forms part of the development of Creative Industries in the City of Ekurhuleni. It plays a vital role in growing a “smart” economy, a creative economy that not only attracts cultural workers and quality jobs, but also contributes to economic growth and social development. The Ekurhuleni audiovisual industry encompasses a range of creative production activities including film, TV and documentary production, commercials, stills photography and multimedia.

The Ekurhuleni International Film Festival (EIFF) was officially launched at the OR Tambo Cultural Precinct in the vibrant township of Wattville, on 25 June 2016. The purpose of EIFF is to empower local and international filmmakers by providing them with vital filmmaking skills, creating networking opportunities with local and international broadcasters and promoting local businesses through the film industry and mainstream economic development across a variety of sectors in the economy.
