The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) will launch a drive-in experience, to encourage a love of local film, at the Mall of Africa, Waterfall Park in Midrand, Johannesburg on 5 December 2020.
The newly established drive-in experience is set to promote South African films during the Covid-19 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.
Local acts Shimza and the vocally-gifted Kaylow will be serving live performances between screenings.
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.
