The AFDA Graduation Festival is held annually in the month of November. This festival showcases 3rd year, 4th year and master's film and television graduation productions. The festival is a platform to promote the young professionals whom will soon enter into the film and television industry.
Students conceptualize and produce this graduation film by making use of their newly discovered artistic expression but creating a film that is commercially viable. At the festival a panel of industry professionals assess the film and opportunity is given for an audience response. The festival sees many industry professionals, alumni and general public join us whilst we celebrate the exhibition and promotion of our young film makers and their films.
Cape Town Production 2014
The day starts with the loss of a caged bird and the protagonist, Olive accepting the fact whilst left home alone. The end of a day leads her to lock the house on her way to bed until she crosses paths with a thief. The frightened decision of locking the thief in proves her concern for safety, which turns into a power play between the two. The journey extends to a physical confrontation that puts Olive’s life at risk opening her eyes to the seriousness of the situation. She shows her gratitude towards the thief by letting him go.
