South Africa's only film festival devoted exclusively to documentaries, Encounters: South African International Documentary Film Festival was first held in 1999, and visits Johannesburg before its showing in Cape Town. It features screenings, panel discussions and workshops for aspiring film-makers.

Highlights include Marley, The Island President, Pina, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, Call Me Kuchu, Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark, Al Jazeera showcase, Saving Rhino Phila, Eames, The Great Contemporary Art Bubble, Noise of Cairo, Can’t Just Fold Your Arms, The Sunny Side of Sex, The Cut, One Day After Peace, An Epic Tale, Breathe Again, Progress and Healers to name a few. Encounters is the premier Documentary Festival on the African continent and a major event on the film circuit calendar. Documentaries have the power to take audiences into other worlds, hold a mirror up to humanity and lift the veil on our perceptions of ourselves and others.

Doc features are now a global phenomenon and this year filmgoers are offered an exceptional and varied selection of 50+films - many award winning titles, fresh from international festivals and 16 that will receive their World Premières at Encounters.

Venues: Nu Metro, V&A Waterfront Nu Metro Cinemas and The Classic On Broadway, Long Street
