Cape Town Squad Industry Movie Night featuring My Rode Reel winning Short films

Wed Mar 2, 19:00 - Wed Mar 2, 22:00

Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel Rooftop Cinema


Join us for the first Cape Town Squad Movie Night at the Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel on March 2nd at 7pm. This event is for actors, filmmakers and movie lovers and is organized by filmmakers. The theme is My Rode Reel films and you will watch selected films that won prizes in the My Rode Reel competition and meet the directors.

This is an evening of movies, meeting filmmakers and enjoying drink specials on the scenic rooftop of Cape Town's legendary Grand Daddy Hotel. The screening will include the behind the scenes videos of the films as well as an exclusive Q&A (Live and Virtual) with the filmmakers.

In the My Rode Reel competition, sound is key and this is the first time these films are premiering in cinema in Cape Town with cinema sound so we can fully enjoy them together!

The following films will be screening along with directors present for Q/A:

Fine Lines directed by Kyndra Kennedy (Los Angeles) (Kyndra won prizes in the My Rode Reel competition in 2018, 2019 and 2020!)

A story about women who have internalized the belief that “as we age, beauty fades" and our social value diminishes.

Amanzi Olwandle "Ocean Water" directed by Timothy Hay (South Africa)

This entry to the "My Rode Reel 2020" competition won the Judges choice and is based on a true story about a Surfer (Avo) that lost his brother (Zama) to a tragic shark attack when they were young boys at their home break in Port St John’s. The ocean is the link that bonds the two in spirit.

Xolani directed by Tao Ferren (South Africa)

Xolani tells the personal story of a circus performer, and the lessons he has learnt from experiencing trauma from the most unexpected source

Moments in Time directed by Paula Zapata (South Africa)

We embarked on a journey to shoot in a hidden gem in the forest of Uilenkraalsmond, Gansbaai, a two and a half hour drive from Cape Town, South Africa. Nestled in a blanket of trees in a small wooden cabin, we challenged ourselves to shoot a piece of wonder in two days in the dreamy surrounding area. It's safe to say that our memories of this weekend will forever stay in our hearts.

Event schedule:

Happy Hour, Mingling: 7pm-8pm

Screening to start at: 8pm-9pm

Q&A: 9:00pm -9:30pm

Ticket purchases include a complimentary popcorn and there will be lucky draw at the end of the night with prizes from Grand Daddy Hotel, Photo Hire, and Gizela Conradie Headshots.
