VSAFF set for debut

We are extremely excited to announce that the first ever Vancouver South African Film Festival is coming in 2011!

Join us on January 22nd and 23rd at the Empire Granville 7 Cinemas when we screen eight South African documentaries and feature films that show the new face of the country.

The VSAFF is a non-profit event presented by a 100 per cent volunteer-run Canadian charity, Education without Borders. All proceeds will go towards educational projects at Fezeka Secondary in the township of Gugulethu, South Africa.

The award-winning film “Skin”, a moving story of a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners unaware of their black ancestry, will open the festival. Stay tuned for the latest on our films and further details on the event.

Education without Borders aims to provide improved educational opportunities and facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world. Formed in 2002 in Vancouver and granted charitable status in 2003, EwB believes that the development of knowledge and skills gives individuals more possibilities for their future and builds communities from within.
