Cape Winelands Film Festival

This promising new festival, which shows award-winning short films, features and documentaries from across the globe, was inaugurated in 2009. The picturesque Oude Libertas Theatre outside Stellenbosch served as the home base, with other screenings at smaller venues throughout the town. Films were divided into categories: these ranged from world cinema to eco cinema, cinema of conscience and food on film, as well as a category for South African premieres.
