The inaugural Cape Town Eco Film Festival took place at the Labia Theatre on Orange Street in Cape Town, South Africa from Thursday the 27th of March to Monday the 31st of March 2014.
The Festival is a project of While You Were Sleeping, a non-profit collective committed to bringing documentaries with important social, environmental and political themes to South African audiences. It featured 24 world-class documentaries covering a wide range of environmental topics and offering insights and inspiration for change. Each screening was followed by a facilitated audience discussion to encourage festivalgoers to tackle the challenges highlighted in the films personally, as well as promoting public debate and raising awareness about important local and global environmental issues.
The Festival was a fantastic success and will be back in 2015.
Thank you Cape Town, for your enthusiastic support!
