Short films from BRICS countries shown at day 3 of One People International Film Festival

Festival Dates: April 27 – May 1, 2021

The One People International Film Festival (OPIFF) is proud to be championing Filmmakers from around the world, with Day 3 of screenings having a heavy focus on BRICS countries.

“One of our key partners for the festival was TV BRICS in Russia. They have helped the festival tremendously in securing submissions from BRICS countries. There help has enabled the festival to grow exponentially in its first year,” stated Johann Abrahams, seasoned Journalist and Festival Organizer.

The screening of the BRICS short films will continue at 11am at NuMetro Canal Walk, today. The focus of the films are on indigenous communities in BRICS countries. This follows on a batch of short films which had been screened at the OPIFF in previous days.

Furthermore, one of the BIG highlights of this year’s film festival, is the featuring of Dear Comrades, an Oscar Nominated Film.

A Masterpiece by veteran filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky, tells the story of when the communist government raises food prices in 1962, the rebellious workers from the small industrial town of Novocherkassk go on strike. The massacre which then ensues is seen through the eyes of a devout party activist.


The screening will take place today at 2pm at Nu Metro Cinema’s in Canal Walk. Present at the screening will be Russian Diplomats, including the Russian Consul General in Cape Town.

Screenings of the films will be both Online and in-person. In-person screening will take place at Nu Metro Cinema’s in Canal Walk, whereas online screening will be done via Quicket.

Tickets for the in-person screenings can be purchased at Nu-Metro Canal Walk, and online screening can be purchased via Quicket.

“Media are invited to the film screenings and/or the Closing Gala Dinner this evening at Grandwest Casino. Interviews can be set up with the OPIFF team or Filmmakers and Actors/Actresses who are at the Film Festival,” concluded Johann Abrahams.

The One People International Film Festival is an international film festival founded in 2020, scheduled to be hosted in Cape Town South Africa from 26 April to 2 May 2021.

OPIFF champions content creators from around the world regardless of their language, origin, orientation, race, or religion. With an emphasis on showcasing films that celebrate diversity and inclusion, OPIFF’s exquisite programme of narrative, documentary, and animated films will contribute in uniting communities from across the globe.
