A 2016 CFMS 2nd year film entitled Tomato Soup has been selected for the Shnit International Short Film Festival. 19 films are included in this year’s Kaapse Bobotie program. Tomato Soup, directed by CFMS student Akuol de Mabior, is a four minute film about a bloody confrontation that ensues between a conservative Zulu mother and her new uninhibited daughter in law when they get together for a meal one afternoon.
May was Africa Month, and in celebration, CFMS hosted two events for Women Screen Africa - firstly a screening of African films directed by women, and secondly a panel discussion on those films by postgraduate students.
On 9 and 10 June CFMS will be hosting a student showcase to the public to highlight our work in film and media. This will take place in the Neville Alexander Lecture Theatres 1 and 2 on UCT Upper Campus. CFMS offers two majors - one in Film and TV Studies, and another in Media and Writing.
