About

Garden Route International Film Festival

We are an Independent film festival. Last year the festival was the first of its kind for the Garden Route in South Africa & due to Covid19 it will be the first of its kind again.

GRIFF 2020 will be an ONLINE Virtual Platform & 9 DRIVE-IN Cinemas as a destination for filmmakers, creative expression, education, new technology and media, the GRIFF festival supports emerging and established filmmakers, encourages community participation and learning through innovation. “Experience is everything” remains our mantra with an added online feel "Get your GRIFF on”

Continue to Aim International

GRIFF in 2019 had representation Nationally and Internationally. 27 countries were represented in competition. International standards of selection and judging utilizing Members of the Emmy's were upheld. Marketing principals and audience development were key to the success of the first festival. Once again despite the change of structure, the program creation and development, jury selection, technical standards and experience will remain key strategies employed by the festival to stimulate this growth and achieve our objectives.

The perfect platforms to engage with creators, attract new films and content have been created. @GRIFFfilmfest
