Cape Town is set to host the Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinema et de Television.

Cape Town has been announced as the host of the Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinema et de Television (CILECT).

The South African city will play host to the international film congress between May 1st and 4th.

Supported by the South African School of Motion Pictures and Live Performance, the event will see over 160 film schools represented from around the world.

Hosting the festival is a great honour for the city, as it is the first time it has been held in South Africa in its 60-year history.

The group was founded in Cannes in 1955 with the aim of providing a way for ideas to be exchanged between its member schools.

Chief executive officer of Cape Town Tourism, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold, said: “Cape Town’s film industry is one that contributes greatly to the city’s economy and international flavour, with more and more productions being shot here every year.”
