Submissions for the seventh annual Jozi Film Festival (JFF) open 19 February 2018 and close 28 May 2018. As always, JFF is calling for feature films, short fiction films, documentaries (both short and long) as well as student films, from South Africa and internationally.

The Jozi Film Festival is thrilled to be partnering for a second year with Discovery Channel to bring you the “Don’t Stop Wondering Award”  – a call for 2-5 minute documentaries from filmmakers across Africa which showcase and celebrate unique African stories and capture Discovery’s ethos of sparking curiosity.
