Johannesburg is gearing up to host the Jonzi Film Festival later this month.

People on flights to Johannesburg who have an interest in emerging cinema could enjoy paying a visit to the Jonzi Film Festival in the city.

Kicking off on February 10th, the festival is a new annual showcase for feature films that have been made by people working in Johannesburg and Gauteng.

This year it will see the South African premiere of the film Man on Ground by Akin Omotoso, with the event taking place at the Bioscope Independent Cinema, with the films included in the line up to showcase the lives of the people of Jonzi.

On February 12th, the best films showcased during the festival receive prizes at the Jonzi Film Festival awards, which will be presented by John Vlismas and Nthati Moshesh.

A contemporary dance festival could also appeal to people booking flights to Johannesburg this month, with the Dance Umbrella festival opening on February 17th and showcasing a range of new productions in locations around the city.
