For 10 days from 17 – 27 July, Durban will transformed into a celluloid jungle, teeming with film screenings at 9 wild venues around the city. Here you will find a menagerie of movie species – some rare and endangered, some easy to spot, some dangerous, some playful – and at the heart of this subtropical forest of film lies the new industry hub at the Elangeni Hotel.
