ECHO FILM FESTIVAL – Russia 14-16 Dec 2017
South African Film makers are waiting with baited breath to hear of they will take away a prize as part of the Echo Film Festival.
The main aim of the festival is to present works of talented filmmakers from Brazil, India, China and RSA (Republic of South Africa) to Russian spectators in order to encourage a greater understanding the unique aspects of culture, history and traditions of BRICS countries.
“They came in Spring Carts”, a documentary produced and filmed by Clive Read of Durban, depicting the history behind the Warwick Triangle’s traders, is just one of the South African films selected.
The live screening session and award ceremony will take place in Moscow’s Cosmos Movie Theatre 14 to 16 December, 2017.

DUrbanTV presents programming content from Durban, South Africa, a busy port city situated on the East Coast of South Africa.
The city is a thriving metropolis with a diverse population, the biggest natural harbour in Africa and is a vibrant hub of productivity and economic development.
It is the traditional home of the Zulu nation, has the largest population of Indians outside of India, was known as the Last Outpost due to its colonial past and attracts a myriad of African cultures who work, play and invest in this modern, vibrant, cosmopolitan city, welcoming local and international visitors to its sunny, sub-tropical climate 365 days a year.
With such diversity comes a rich cultural experience, combined with healthy, outdoor lifestyle (Durban has been voted the city with the best quality of life by Mercer for the last 2 years) sporting and recreational activities, and a wealth of African wildlife and natural experiences, Durban really is positioned perfectly as the showcase of Africa.
