Festival Scope Pro (pro.festivalscope.com), the online platform dedicated to film professionals (festivals and film producers), will present a selection of films from the 37th Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) starting in June 2016.
The DIFF, which runs from June 16 to 26 is the continent’s leading showcase of African film, attracting both film-lovers and industry representatives from across Africa and beyond. The partnership brings a selection of South African and African feature films online, available exclusively to film professionals.
The online collection will include a selection from the 50 African films which includes 24 South African films programmed at this year’s festival among the 101 films presented overall.
The festival is dedicated to presenting key African titles such as Leyla Bouzid’s As I Open My Eyes and Jean-Pierre Bekolo’s Naked Reality.
The partnership between DIFF and Festival Scope Pro aims to bring a greater visibility – and potentially a wider distribution – to the African film industry. Each film will be made available after its initial screening, bringing them from Durban, South Africa, straight to film professionals’ screens.
Festival Scope Pro offers festivals on demand to film professionals worldwide.
