Film Cape Town Student Film Showcase

3 September 2023

The City of Cape Town, through Film Cape Town, is partnering with AFDA, UCT’s Centre for Film and Media Studies and CPUT to host an emerging filmmakers film showcase as part of FAME WEEK Africa.

For the three days of the event, from 4 to 6 September 2023, the space will screen short films and documentaries by emerging filmmakers from some of our local film institutions.

The Film Cape Town showcase will screen 8 films from students and graduates from AFDA, UCT and the CPUT.  

Providing opportunities

Film Cape Town was established in part to provide as many opportunities for Cape Town’s diverse talent pool including actors, crew and producers among others.

This showcase aims to provide a platform for these filmmakers for their work to be seen by potential employers or investors who are attending FAME Week Africa.

Film Cape Town is also facilitating for emerging filmmakers to attend workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions by industry experts. 

They will also get the opportunity to network and attend content sessions where they share ideas and market their projects.


Film screenings, four shorts a day, at the Film Cape Town will be at 10:00 until 14:00 daily.

The schedule is available below:
