Encounters is the number one documentary festival in Africa and has been running for 24 years. We offer a 10-day multiplatform event, featuring the best African and international documentaries from around the world and continue to engage audiences with year-round activities. We pride ourselves on discovering the most promising new voices in African storytelling and bringing their work to screens, both in cinemas and online, as well as at outreach venues. For the first time in two years all films will be shown in selected cinemas in Cape Town and Johannesburg from 23 June to 3 July 2022.
