The AFDA Johannesburg 2017 honours graduation films “Izilwane” and “Mallemeule” have been selected to screen at the Cannes Short Corner Festival 2018.

The Cannes Court Metrage presents the complementary dynamics of the Short Film Competition and the Short Film Corner, giving a complete overview of worldwide productions in the short format. Since 2004, short film producers and directors have chosen the Short Film Corner as the place to present their films, make meetings reality and take decisive steps for their future careers. By being presented at the Short Film Corner, filmmakers are able to network with all the biggest industry players: institutions, financiers and the most important international reps in the films business.
