Africa’s premier film event, the Durban International Film Festival, which is hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Creative Arts, presents its 36th edition from 16 to 26 July, 2015, in the east coast city of Durban, South Africa.
For the first time in the history of the festival, film-lovers can now explore the world of DIFF on iTunes at www.itunes.com/DIFF where they will be able to enjoy films that complement the official selection this year. Staying within the DIFF’s Areas of Focus, the films that fans can enjoy include Palme d’Or winners such as Marty, or experience the musical frenzy that is the Director’s Cut of Woodstock.
iTunes has a history of working with film festivals around the world such as Cannes, TRIBECA, Toronto Film Festival and more, so it’s great for DIFF to now have a presence on the store.
“Many people are unable to get to the DIFF, or simply do not have the time to see all the titles on offer at the festival so we are pleased that for the first time, we are building this special area on iTunes for people to access great films associated with DIFF.” says Pedro Pimenta, Director of DIFF.
The festival also includes the Wavescape Surf Film Festival as well as important industry initiatives featuring a programme of seminars and workshops with notable industry figures, the 8th Talents Durban (in cooperation with the Berlinale Talents) and the 6th Durban FilmMart co-production market (in partnership with the Durban Film Office).
The festival is a hub for the African film industry and is an unmissable date for both industry representatives and lovers of film.
The full programme for the DIFF can be found on www.durbanfilmfest.co.za or follow us on Twitter at @DIFFest or Facebook on DurbanInternationalFilmFestival.
