As the economy slowly returns to normal, the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) is looking to encourage the growth of the local film industry by hosting a cinema Park In Experience at Mall of Africa, Waterfall Park on 5 December 2020.
The newly established Drive-in experience is set to promote South African Films during the Covid regulations by having a full day experience featuring some of the most well-known local blockbusters including, Kagiso Lediga’s kasi classic Matwetwe and Kalushi which is based on a story about the Freedom Fighter and struggle activist Solomon Mahlangu.
The Park in Experience is a cinema structure consisting of a large outdoor movie screen, a projection booth, concession stands, and a large parking area for cars.
Within this enclosed area, customers can view films from the privacy and comfort of their cars. To gaze under the stars and enjoy the perfect weather, customers will also be given the option to buy tickets for the limited picnic area while complying with the strict COVID-19 regulations.
“The lockdown period has taught us to enjoy and appreciate each other’s companies more than ever before, and we decided to make sure that we showcase the best of local film by hosting this event, to remind us of the talent of our local creatives. We want to let everyone know they can still have fun while adhering to social distancing rules,” said Lerato Maunatlala (Co-founder) Park In Experience.
