What is Encounters?
It’s South Africa’s only film festival devoted exclusively to documentaries featuring screenings, panel discussions and workshops for aspiring filmmakers. First held in 1999, it’s the premier documentary festival in Africa and a major event on the film circuit calendar. This year, there will be a varied selection of 50+ films, with many award winning titles, fresh from international festivals, and 8 will receive their World Premières at Encounters.
