Founded in 2020, the One People International Film Festival will open its doors for the first time in April 2021, in Cape Town.

The local film and entertainment industry looks set to get a boost later this year, as it’s been announced the One People International Film Festival (OPIFF) will open its doors for the first time in April 2021, in Cape Town.

Founded in 2020, OPIFF aims to create an intimate and collaborative space for filmmakers.

Organisers say attendees can look forward to masterclasses, networking opportunities, international film and documentary screenings, and ‘elegant Red-Carpet Premieres’.

The festival’s Steven Taylor says they’re hopeful the festival will go ahead as planned, but if Covid-19 regulations change, they will adapt the festival to go online.

Either way, we have to showcase the talent that South Africa has and we shouldn’t be stopping, we should be pushing on regardless.

This is an opportunity for South Africans, people in Cape Town to be able to showcase their amazing talents.

We’re asking indigenous communities to get involved because often their voice is not heard.

Taylor says they’re also looking for movies that tell stories of the current coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s tell the stories of those who’ve passed away, I’m sure there are a lot of stories to be told.
