About the Apollo Annual Film Festival

South African film makers are often progressive and innovative, writing and producing some of the most creative pieces on the continent. And, from 3 to 6 October 2018, they have the opportunity to showcase their work at the Apollo Annual Film Festival in the scenic Karoo town of Victoria West.

The last film festival held by the Apollo Development Association was in 2008, after which the Apollo Theatre faced the threat of deregistration. This is a beautiful theatre, one of the last art deco-style cinemas in the country. So, it is with enormous excitement that this event is, once again, being held; reviving the art and film scene and promising massive opportunities to those in the film world. This will be the ninth Apollo Film Festival and is sure to be even more successful and fun than before.

This event will offer a prime space for South African films from 2017 and 2018 to be enjoyed, recognised, and even awarded. But, more than this, the Apollo Annual Film Festival is about fun for the whole family, not only keen film fans. There will be drum majorette shows, hiking and walking trails, plenty of amazing food and drinks at a variety of stall, and lots more. The festival opens at 09h00 and closes at 17h00 on the weekdays.

The Apollo Theatre itself is a beautiful little find in the heart of the Northern Cape. By hosting events like these, it plays a role in uplifting the local community and involving everyone nearby in the excitement of the film industry on a global level.

To avoid disappointment it is advisable to book your accommodation well in advance for this event. Visit the Victoria West Accommodation pages to find guest houses, hotels and self catering places to stay and for additional info about Victoria West which includes attractions, restaurants and things to do, see Victoria West Info.
