South Africa Online Film Festival

Following in the footsteps of Amazon’s LOVEFiLM and the recent launch of YouTube’s online movie rental service, AfricaFilms.tv introduces itself as the first legal download site for films from and about Africa and the diaspora.

This initiative, created by the Senegalese company SOON, manages its entire e-store from Africa. It is based upon the co-operation between AfricaFilms.tv and the African producers, directors and film owners. Feature films, documentaries, live events and series (most available with subtitles) are all available for download from anywhere in the world.

The South Africa Online Film Festival, in partnership with Encounters South African International Documentary Film Festival and the South African Season in France 2013, is running from the 18th July until the 22nd September. It offers an international audience a chance to rent or buy 150 entirely South African films and TV series episodes divided into 4 genres which best represent the most well-known film events in the country: Cinema & Fiction, Documentary, LGBT and Human Rights.

Members will receive a Free Film Rent Offer where each visitor can get a free film for 48 hours. This will take place during the last week of August and as a closing event on September 13-22nd. This is a documentary special, as a partnership between Encounters and People2people.
