#DGLFF2017 Welcomes You! The Durban Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, established in 2011, is the oldest city-based LGBTI event of its kind in Africa. During this 7th annual DGLFF this August we will screen a diversity of 7 feature films, nearly a dozen doccies and over 30 short films, spanning 10 days that celebrate African and global queer cinema! Our Public workshops this year include international guest filmmakers and human rights activists from South Africa, Denmark, India and Pakistan. Again, we are curating a culturally exciting space for LGBTI people and their supporters, families and friends to come together as community. Of course, we’re open to everyone and are inclusive, not exclusive! This year we’re shaking things up a bit, and taking the Festival to audiences across Durban: from the inner city to the outer suburbs, from urban locale to township vibe, #DGLFF2017 is all about growth and diversity. We’re exceptionally proud to have the amazing South African queer feature ‘INXEBA’ (‘The Wound’) -- a film about a gay man’s initiation into Xhosa manhood and the clash between traditonal culture sexuality -- that will open the Festival on Friday 25 August and will include a special additional community screening (venue to be confirmed) on Sat 2 Sept. There are also a number of fabulous home-made LGBTIQ films in this year’s line up. Durban filmmaker Dayakar Padayachee bring us his gay horror short film ‘SHADOW’ that will host its world premiere at #DGLFF2017 on Sat 26 August! Thishiwe Ziqubu’s short lesbian film SINA NOMAKOTSHANA’ (‘Dance with the Maidens’) has been selected as our Closing Night Film on Sat 2 September -- a fascinating story of love finding its space within a young Zulu maiden’s coming of age ceremony. Both of form part of our New South African Queer Cinema selection this year -- exciting, bold and honest stories informed by LGBTIQ experiences and that will definitely sear themselves into the hearts of audiences.
