Out of 2017:

Xola Mteto’s film EMBO will open and close the festival this year. X, as he chooses to be
known, was one of the nine participants in last year’s talent campus.
From spotting an opportunity on a poster in the American Corner, through to creating his first ‘eco’ film, we’re very proud of all X has achieved in the past year!
