Register: South African Eco Film Festival 2015
Description: The South African Eco Film Festival brings the best local and international eco documentaries to South African audiences. Our world-class programme of beautifully shot and engaging short and feature-length films explores a wide range of environmental topics and is sure to appeal to all ages. This year’s festival includes the Eco Kids Film Initiative.
The programme includes more than 25 beautifully shot, thought-provoking short and feature-length documentaries – 12 of which have never been seen in South Africa before. Members of the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film, which will be decorated with the Silver Tree Audience Choice Award.
For every ticket purchased at the standard price of R45, the event organisers have undertaken to donate R5 to Greenpop, who will use the money to help finance their re-forestation efforts in South Africa and Zambia.
The South African Eco Film Festival is a project of While You Were Sleeping, a registered South African Non Profit Organisation (NPO registration no: 137-167 NPO) committed to bringing documentaries with important social, environmental and political themes to South African audiences.
