DIFF 2020 shines spotlight on African continent


If there is something that no one will be able to strip Africa of, it’s the authentic stories that have shaped its history and its people.

Many directors from all over the continent have taken to the big screen to share their authentic storytelling in compelling feature films debuting at the 41st Durban International Film Festival.

This year, owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event will take place virtually from September 10 to 20. 60 films are on offer virtually, with a few in the running to win awards.

Here are our top 4 not-to-be-missed continental films at the festival this year.


“143 Sahara Street” – Algeria
