Vancouver South African Film Festival 2014
Vancouver South African Film Festival (VSAFF) aims to shine a light on South African film and filmmakers for a B.C. audience; to explore the culture, history and politics of South Africa in films that both entertain and inform; and to raise money for Vancouver-based non-profit Education without Borders, which works with township schools in South Africa.
This year's diverse festival includes films on the late Nelson Mandela, a documentary on six South African artists (The Creators) and a controversial noir thriller (Of Good Report), a heartwarming family film (Felix), and a masterful Afrikaans film (Die Wonderwerker). The VSAFF gala film is Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the new South Africa, a documentary about Albie Sachs, a lawyer, writer, art lover and freedom fighter, set against the dramatic events leading to the overthrow of the apartheid regime. Mr. Albie will be in attendance for a Q&A.
