Film Enthusiasts Get A Chance To Make Their Own Movies

An international film concept will be held in the Union Building on Saturday, 18 September 2010, where members of the public will get a chance to make their own films.

Cinema Sports gives participants just ten hours to come up with a film concept and then shoot the movie. The movies will then be screened an hour after completion. The only reward will be to make the film and having them screened and viewed by members of the public.

“There is no prize. People will just come and view the films. The movies are not rated,” says Greg Du Tertre from the Drama and Film Department at the Tswane University of Technology.

The concept was started by Jin Joo in in San Francisco, USA, in 2004. Joo will also attend the event over the weekend. The concept has been brought to South Africa by the Tshwane University of Technology’s Drama and Film Department. For further information participants can e-mail or visit
