Knysna Film Festival 2019
Step right up for the first ever Knysna Film Festival from 29 October to 02 November 2019! The aim behind this fabulous addition is to give local filmmakers an opportunity to engage intimate audience in their productions. On the final night there will also be an awards gala event. Tickets will need to be purchased for each phase of the event and will be available on the website and through Computicket.
How Will It Work?
The venues will be in Thesen Harbour Town and the Knysna Waterfront to boost attendance of those in the industry as well as local and international visitors to the region.
Knysna’s Film Festival will also be the launch of ‘Intimater’ and ‘Match’ programmes which encourage education in films. These involve events, social networking opportunities, workshops and discussion panels all centred around the films.
