#BraveFutures Cape Town

#BraveFutures Cape Town

After successful competitions around the globe we returned to South Africa to host the Cape Town edition of this film race for creatives, storytellers and filmmakers of all levels.

Participants registered for a chance to be selected by OTV and our community partners at Girls In Film South Africa. We then curated six teams comprising of up six individuals with a wide range of talents, skills levels and filmmaking experiences and provided them with production resources and mentorship to help bring their films to life.

After the three films were completed and submitted, we hosted a premiere + awards ceremony at The Labia Theatre, one of South Africa's oldest independent cinema houses. The SOLD OUT premiere + awards ceremony featured an opportunity for their films to be voted on by the public for a chance to win one of three people's choice awards, and one OTV-juried award.

This special edition of #BraveFutures was like no other 48 hour film competition and we are excited to continue evolving the format, building community, creating space for joy and brave art-making . bravefuturesfilmrace.com
