Gauteng Youth Film Club is an initiative by young filmmakers for youth filmmakers to come together and celebrate one another’s work. GYFC’s fundamental goal is to develop local audience’s viewing and understanding of local productions. This is a grassroots approach to tackle the lack of local cinema or film viewing culture in South Africa. Audiences and filmmakers will have an opportunity to interact with one another in the form of networking and a Q&A session after each screening. This ensures that audiences can get be educated on the local, youth film industry and in turn filmmakers receive direct feedback from audiences.
