The 15th Durban FilmMart, under the theme – African Visions Unleashed: From Disruption to Accountability, will take place from 19-22 July.  

The DFM Pitch and Finance Forum will present 30 projects in development attracting film professionals from across the globe.  The Industry Programme, made up of masterclasses and panel discussions, aims to create a space for critical engagement and to begin a new conversation around the topical issues of our current cultural moment. 


DIFF upholds Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Creativity as guaranteed in Section 16 of the South African Constitution. The festival recognises that artists may sometimes live and work in States whose values may not always be in accordance with the values of the South African Constitution but the Centre for Creative Arts commits to protect and advance the rights of any artist who freely chooses to participate in the Centre’s festivals where their voices and artistic expressions can contribute to building a better world for all people.

Thank you to our Partners for their continued support
