FILM in­dus­try cre­atives, movie en­thu­si­asts, celebri­ties and me­dia per­son­al­i­ties were treated to a night un­der the stars.

Glitz and glam was the or­der of the evening at the open­ing of the Joburg Film Fes­ti­val, which took place at the Nel­son Man­dela Square on Tues­day night.

The stars came out on the pur­ple car­pet in their best at­tire. In­ter­na­tional artist and face of the fes­ti­val Nomzamo Mbatha got her break through Mzansi Magic.

The Fes­ti­val, in its third year, was born to cre­ate an in­de­pen­dent plat­form that not only tells Africa’s sto­ries, but show­cases and re­wards the con­ti­nent’s and in­ter­na­tional ex­cel­lence in film. It runs un­til Novem­ber 24. The spon­sors are the Depart­ment of Arts and Cul­ture, Kaya FM, In­de­pen­dent Me­dia and Sand­ton City. | African News Agency (ANA)
