The theme is Best of SUPP and you will watch some of the Best Films on their platform from South Africa and meet the directors in the Q&A.


This is an evening of movies, meeting filmmakers and enjoying food & 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.

The following films will be screening with Q/A with filmmakers:


21TH Street directed by Kelsey Egan (Director of Glasshouse) (Drama)

Johannesburg, 1993. Meat sizzles on an open braai. An Afrikaans girl watches her father shatter an empty bottle. She takes a plastic bag filled with broken glass and follows her baby brother up a rickety ladder. They perch on top of the wall. She dips a spade into an ice cream tub; slaps a layer of wet cement between her knees. Her brother hands her a shard of glass; she wedges it into the cement. He plays catch with a piece. She eyes a passerby warily. The glass slips through her brother's fingers, falls at the passerby's feet. He picks it up; hands it back.


Izilwane directed by Killian Roux (Cannes Short Film Corner) (Drama)

Izilwane is a hard hitting social drama about a homeless woman who dreams of a better life for her and her 6 year old brother. When Kgosi goes missing, Grace tracks him down by way of the usual suspects only to be faced with a difficult decision.


Parcel directed by Brett Williams and Hayden Phipps (Horror/Suspense)

The haunting tale of a suburban man's encounter with a mysterious parcel that changes his fate.


Last Laughter Guru directed by Paula Zapata (Dark comedy) (Nominated for Female Filmmaker of the Year, & Best Score at the LA48HFP 2021)

In a world where laughter is hard to come by, a dysfunctional family kidnaps a laughter guru to make them laugh.


Birth of a Karen by Looped Pictures directed by Nadiya Jooma and Jaco van Bosch (Comedy)

Being referred to as a "Karen" is a term reserved for a stereotyped character in society who is epitomised as "a middle-aged white woman with an asymmetrical bob asking to speak to the manager, who happens to be as entitled as she is ignorant". The term is problematic but gets a playful send up in The Birth of a Karen, as a "Karen" gets her daughter to face up to a delivery guy who's just trying to do his job. When they unbox the product and it's broken, a comical scenario ensues as a Karen-in-training takes the wheel. This zippy short film features Laré Birk as Mom and captures the fun through its upbeat performances and lively banter, turning a typical suburban situation into a spunky representation of a voiceless "Karen" and her protégé.
