The South African Film Festival may have been and gone in May of this year, yet it lingers on, in sweet refrain. SAFF presents SAFF On Demand from 29 May to 13 June 2021, making it its 3rd SAFF Video on Demand. Find the Online Program HERE. Perfect lockdown activity. Bring on the popcorn.

This curated selection of the very best of South African films direct to your home includes features and documentaries and favourites from 2019, 2020 and 2021 SAFF Festival Programs. You now have 2 weeks to catch the films you missed at all the Festivals. Get your self a VOD Festival Pass and you get access to all 24 films (17 films from the 2021 Festival and 7 favourites from the 2019 and 2020 Festivals) for just $80.

Can't complain about the cost of just over $3 per film. Cost for individual films: $8 single viewer; $10 more than 1 viewer. Ticket profits and donations support Education Without Borders in programs that assist young South Africans in some of the country's most disadvantaged communities.

Films featured in the lineup include:

Liyana - An award-winning hybrid family documentary where oral storytelling and innovative animation fuse to tell the plight of Swazi AIDS orphans.
Beyond Moving - An uplifting documentary about Siphe November, a gifted ballet dancer discovered as a boy in the townships. A Billy Elliot story with a South African twist.
Johnny Clegg, The White Zulu - Apartheid wanted to separate blacks from whites. One of South Africa's most exceptional musicians, Johnny Clegg brought them together by mixing English and Zulu, African rhythms and rock.
Glory Game: The Joost van der Westhuizen Story - The story of a modern day warrior forced to face his own human frailty against the backdrop of sporting glory.
Beyond the River - Inspired by a true story of two men escaping - one heartache the other a life of crime. Both enter a gruelling Dusi canoe marathon hoping to heal their nation's wounds.

There are many more to enjoy. As well as access to watch the films, your ticket also gets you exclusive content that includes filmmaker Q&A session, interviews with the directors and more.
