Description:
South Africa's premier gay and lesbian film festival coincided in origin with the election of Nelson Mandela for President and was first held in 1995. In 2007 there are two festivals, held in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, one in March (its traditional spot) and one in November. In 1994, South Africa introduced a constitution with a clause forbidding discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. Nodi Murphy and Jack Lewis rose to the occasion and launched South Africa's first gay and lesbian film festival. With audiences of 16,000 people and growing, international guests introduce films and preside over workshops. The festival not only educates and entertains, but also crosses national and cultural frontiers. Among other backers, the British Council has funded the festival for five years. http://www.oia.co.za/
