Under the Dome launching in November!

3 Sep 2019 - 16:00

The Centre for Curating the Archive, in collaboration with Iziko Museums of South Africa, is pleased to announce that our experimental film festival, Under the Dome, will launch on the 15th of November (2019) at Iziko's planetarium and digital dome. 

On Friday the 15th the CCA will open the three night festival with a screening of all nine of our short films (of five to ten minutes each) followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. The second and third nights, which will also see the nine films screened, will be open to the public with 135 free tickets, per night, being made available from mid October. Keep checking the CCA website or subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date and get your tickets first.

After choosing six films from the many proposals we received we have added another three made by Iziko and CCA staff members and associates. The nine films that are being shown as part of the festival are as follows:

Fragments of an Untold History by Martin Wilson, Cliff Bestall, Tracey “Khadija” Heeger and Warrick Swinney.

Damm: A documentary by Dr Siona O'Connell and Jade Nair.
