Isiphethu (Isiphethu International Student Film Festival)
The Isiphethu programme is DIFF’s programme responsible for community engagement workshops and screenings, a school programme and an IsiZulu Masterclass series. This year the programme also launches the inaugural Isiphethu International Student Film Festival. This festival aims to create a platform and gateway for students to the big festival by exposing them to the role players in the film industry and showcasing their work on big cinema screens. The festival will take place primarily online, with a few selected films to screen at the reception on the 27 July at the Suncoast Cinema. IISFF will be the role player and centre focus on the continent to connect the continent and diaspora.

Isiphethu brings a variety of community engagement workshops at the KZNSA Gallery as well as online, the Isiphethu on Tour, which brings community screenings in places like Wushwini Pan African Art Centre in KwaNgcolosi, KCAP in KwaMashu, Luthuli Museum in Stanger, UBUNTUNest in Howick and Denis Hurley in the heart of Durban city. The school’s programme will also take place at the KZNSA Gallery, with over fifty learners taking part in the Media Expo session and the Children’s Day Event. The programme will also include the ten-day IsiZulu Masterclass Series with fifteen participants from different parts of the province.

This programme is developmental and training; it also seeks to inform community members about the film industry and empower young people. It has positioned itself as the creative hub for aspirant filmmakers.
