A full lineup that looks promising; I'll go through the list eventually; for right now, the short story...

The 14th Encounters South African International Documentary Festival is back this year, from Friday 8 to Sunday 24 June 2012, with a line-up that will keep you glued to screens in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

“Our small team of reviewers scoured through 487 entries to compile a programme of 29 international and 22 SA films. We are proud to present the 2012 line-up of the last year’s most compelling documentaries; award-winners, festival darlings, SA world premières and fresh student films,” says Mandisa Zitha, Festival Director.

So, whether you’re a diehard film buff or merely just someone with an penchant for popcorn, get ready to partake in what is promised to be the most interesting and enlightening programme yet, with three master classes and presentations, a SAGE editing seminar and two panel discussion for the urgent and essential South African film “Can’t Just Fold Your Arms”.

Additionally, in light of a partnership with the festival, Al Jazeera, the hard-hitting Doha-based news broadcaster, will be presenting many of their African-focused investigative films and will be spearheading a number of Q&A sessions.

2012 Encounters Film Festival Highlights South African Oscar winner Jon Blair will be presenting as part of a special focus, and he’llas also be hosting a master class based on his expansive knowledge as a director and producer. Dr Mitzi Goldman has 20 years’ experience to relay in her master class, a tutorial which focuses on practical storytelling and fundraising. Award-winning American filmmaker Tiffany Shlain will not only present her film, “Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death and Technology”, but she’ll also lead a thought-provoking presentation on “cloud-filmaking”.

Watch the stories from all corners of South Africa and across the world through the lens of spirited and unwavering filmmakers who tackle behind-the-scenes issues.

Tickets are from R40 p/p at participating cinemas: NuMetro V& A Waterfront, NuMetro Hyde Park, The Fugard Theatre in Cape Town, The Bioscope in Johnannesburg, Ster Kinekor Cavendish – 3D Screenings only, and Ster Kinekor Sandton – 3D Screenings only.
