The objective of the CTFM is to bring local producers together with potential partners and financiers from South Africa's co-production partners: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Department of Trade and Industry, Wesgro and the Western Cape Government's Department of Finance, Economic Development and Tourism and Ster Kinekor Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront are major partners of the 2014 festival and we would like to thank them in advance. The festival remains an important forum for South African cinema and we are proud to present the premierè of the Afrikaans feature film by Paul Eilers (Stuur Groete aan Mannetjies Roux), as well as 30 new South African short films and documentaries by emerging filmmakers in the Class of 2013 competition. We are proud to present several award winning films from the Arab speaking countries in this year's Preview Festival, which includes films like Merzak Allouache's The Repentant, Susan Youssef's Habibi and the moving documentary A World Not Ours. Extraordinary films such as Ali Blue Eyes, Five Dances, Matterhorn, The Invisible Men, The Last Match and Snails in the Rain will be screened. A major theme this year is the experiences of children, teenagers and young adults, from sensitive coming of age films for example Kauwboy to masterful films about grief and loss such as Hide Your Smiling Faces and House With a Turret. .

  • 3. ALì BLUE EYES (Alì Ha Gli Occhi Azzurri) Director: Claudio Giovannesi Country: Italy Year: 2012 Running Time: 98 min Cast: Nader Sarhan, Stefano Rabatti, Brigitte Apruzzesi, Marian Valenti Adrian Nader, a 16-year-old Italian-born son of Egyptian Muslim parents, is at the centre of this powerful tale of a young man caught between his peers and his cultural roots. In love with Italian girl Brigitte, he defies family wishes by running away from home. When his hotheaded friend Stefano gets into a fight, Nader stabs a young Romanian in his defence, forcing Nader to flee and go into hiding. Spending his days cold, hungry and afraid he avoids the wounded victim's family, who are now seeking revenge. The title, Alì Blue Eyes, comes from the seminal writer, intellectual and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini's poem 'Prophesy'. The neorealist style and backdrop all acknowledge this great director's influence. Director Claudio Giovannesi developed this multi-award winning feature film from his documentary, Brothers of Italy, using many of the real-life characters in the fictional film. Sarhan won the best young actor award at the Angers European First Film Festival. His portrayal of a second-generation immigrant is raw and real, made even more true thanks to family and friends playing themselves in a story strongly based on their own lives. Italy is struggling to come to grips with its growing immigrant population, and this film explores the issues in a way that is fresh, engaging, and vital. 3 Nov @ 12:30 - Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4 Nov @ 12:30 - Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront Antonio + Silvana = 2 Director: Simone Aleandri , Vanni Gandolfo, Luca Onorati Country: Italy Year: 2011 Running Time: 71 min DOCUMENTARY They were once a couple, but good-natured Antonio was frightened off by Silvana's tempestuous and flamboyant character. And now, at the age of 77, Antonio is in a rest home and 60-year-old Silvana is trying to catch a glimpse of him. By turns angry and excited, Silvana talks to the documentary filmmakers who are following at her heels about her great love that is hiding from her. Silvana's peroxide hair and missing teeth make for a striking appearance that betrays her life of prostitution, drugs and reckless behavior. She deliberates loudly about Antonio's rejection of her and chalks messages to him on her walls - ranging from the obscene and offensive to the poetic and love-drenched. The inhabitants of Trastevere, an old neighborhood in the heart of Rome, look on with a mixture of irritation and amusement; there are those who fully support Silvana's quest, while others view her solely as a troublemaker. 4 Nov @ 17:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront A WORLD NOT OURS Director: Mahdi Fleifel Country: Canada Year: 2012 Running Time: 93 min DOCUMENTARY An intimate, and often humorous, portrait of three generations of exiles in the refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh, in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal recordings, family archives, and historical footage, the film is a sensitive, and illuminating study of belonging, friendship, and family in the lives of those for whom dispossession is the norm, and yearning their daily lives. 5 Nov @ 12:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6 Nov @ 20:00 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 3
  • 4. BEN HUR (BENUR- UN GLADIATORE IN AFFITTO) Director: Massimo Andrei Country: Italy Year: 2013 Running Time: 98 min Cast: Nicola Pistoia, Paolo Triestino, Elisabetta De Vito Sergio is an out-of-work stuntman who claims to have once worked on the Hollywood epic Ben Hur, but now makes ends meet dressing up as a centurion at the Colosseum. He shares an apartment with his sister Maria who works from home providing phone sex. One day, Milan, an illegal immigrant from Belarus, enters their lives and everything changes. Milan is keen to take on any odd job he can find, including filling in Sergio's role at the Colosseum while Sergio takes a holiday. Not only is Milan an immediate hit with the tourist crowds, he uses his engineering skills to build a chariot! Thanks to this very strange man things are looking up for Sergio, and Maria may have finally found love. 3 Nov @ 17:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR Director: Abdellatif Kechiche Country: France Year: 2013 Running Time: 187 min Cast: Adèle Exarchopoulos, Léa Seydoux, Jeremie Laheurte Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013. A French teenage girl discovers love, passion and heartbreak in the arms of another woman. From this simple, not especially unique love story, Kechiche has fashioned an intimate epic in every sense of the term, its every subtle emotional turn rendered widescreen on Exarchopoulos's exquisitely expressive face. Just 19 years old, the actress effortlessly charts Adèle's growth from young adult to young woman. Typically for a Kechiche film, her individual journey is set within a bustling, articulate network of friends, family and food. He remains a most sociable filmmaker, which makes his new film's tingly behind-closed-doors tenderness all the more remarkable. 2 Nov @ 10:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 20:15 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront COLD BLOOM Director: Atsushi Funahashi Country: Japan Year: 2013 Running Time: 119 min Cast: Asami Usuda, Takahiro Miura, Yo Takahashi Shiori, a young woman, is working at the small pressing factory in Hitachi City, a local industrial town, which just starts to recover from the damage caused by the tsunami disaster. She has been living a happy life with Kenji, who is a co-worker and her husband. One day, Shiori gets a phone call from the factory, saying that Kenjo was killed in an accident while he was working at the temporary transfer section. It is said that the accident was caused by Takumi, a young co-worker of Kenji. Shiori, tormented by sudden loneliness, hates Takumi from the bottom of her heart. However, knowing the truth that Takumi was not really responsible for the accident, and seeing Takumi trying to make an effort to atone, Shiori gradually comes to accept Takumi. The factory, which fell into financial difficulties, starts to regain vigour because of the efforts by Takumi. Then Shiori learns that Takumi is going to leave the factory and move to another city. She asks him why, and Takumi confesses that he decided to leave the factory because he realises that he has started to love her. 3 Nov @ 17:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4
  • 5. FIVE DANCES Director: Alan Brown Country: USA Year: 2012 Running Time: 85 min Cast: Ryan Steele, Kimiye Corwin, Reed Luplau, Catherine Miller, Luke Murphy The coming of age tale of an extraordinarily talented young dancer (Ryan Steele) who recently arrived in New York City, Five Dances is a visually sensual glimpse of life and first love in the 'downtown' modern dance world. Shooting mostly in and around a Soho dance studio, with original dance by the internationally renowned choreographer Jonah Bokaer, writerdirector Alan Brown (Private Romeo; Superheroes; Book of Love) and his cast of five of New York's most talented young dancers capture the emotional turbulence and creative excitement of a small dance company during the process of creation. 2 Nov @ 20:00 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 5 Nov @ 17:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront HABIBI Director: Susan Youssef Country: Palestine Year: 2011 Running Time: 93 min Cast: Kais Nashif, Maisa Abd Elhadi and Abd Elhadi. The West Bank setting gives weight to this familiar riff on the doomed young lover scenario. Susan Youssef's Habibi is a raw, immediate work that sometimes suffers because of – but ultimately benefits from – its obvious budgetary constraints and digital lensing. It is based on the epic poem 'Majnun and Layla', a ninth century verse that told of a failed 7th century love affair set against a backdrop of regional conflict (specifically, the defeat of the Byzantines and Persians by the Arabs and the subsequent conquering of Syria and Iraq). Insightfully, Youssef draws parallels to the modern tensions, in particular its impact upon family and society (the random death of a young man is handled with a harsh frankness, indicating just how entrenched violence and grief is in the region). Our 'Romeo' and 'Juliet' here are dreamy artistic spirit Qays and ambitious engineering student Layla. Though from two diametrically opposed backgrounds, they connect over passages of traditional poetry at university. They are kept apart by familial and social forces, yet their love strengthens. He writes graffiti-poetry to her, though such public displays of affection are culturally unacceptable in her enclave; her protective father is embarrassed and her brother Walid, whose moderate views have begun to veer towards Hamas, is enraged. 2 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6 Nov @ 15:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront HIDE YOUR SMILING FACES Director: Daniel Patrick Carbone Country: USA Year: 2013 Running Time: 81 min Cast: Nathan Varnson, Ryan Jones The young lives of two brothers are vividly depicted as they abruptly come of age through the experience of a friend's mysterious death. The event ripples under the surface of their town, unsettling the brothers and their friends in a way that they can't fully understand. Once familiar interactions begin to take on a macabre tone in light of the tragic accident, leading Eric (14) and Tommy (9) to their own silent debates within their minds that build into seemingly insurmountable moral peaks. Hide Your Smiling Faces is a true, headlong glimpse into the raw spirit of youth, as well as the calluses that one often develops as a result of an unfiltered past. 2 Nov @ 17:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 5
  • 6. HOW STRANGE TO BE NAMED FEDERICO: (CHE STRANO CHIAMARSI FEDERICO) Director: Ettore Scola Country: Italy Year: 2013 Running Time: 93 min Cast: Vittorio Viviani, Sergio Rubini, Antonella Attili, Tommaso Lazotti, Giacomo Lazotti, Combining memoir and archival photos and footage with complete recreation, in How Strange to be Named Frederico: Scola narrates Fellini Scola lovingly depicts his relationship with the young Fellini, who would go on to international fame as the director of masterpieces like La strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2 , and Amarcord. Shooting at Cinecittà's venerable Studio 5, where Fellini himself lensed many of his most famous films, Scola delves back into those moments when the two of them sat in Rome's Cinquecento Square talking about life and future projects, prowled the streets in search of stories, or sat around the offices of Marc'Aurelio deciding what cartoons to publish. Fellini was a true original and, in the affectionate words of his wife Giulietta Masina — as well as his long-time collaborator Marcello Mastroianni — a gigantic liar, but his creative mind turned him into a genius of the medium. The name Fellini became a brand, and Felliniesque an adjective, summoning up a world of outlandish, oversized, carnivalesque reverie, full of eccentric people and extravagant costumes, mixed in with a dash of postwar ennui. Scola was in a unique position to observe Fellini — and this magical film is their story. 2 Nov @ 20:00 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 5 Nov @ 17:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront HOUSE WITH A TURRET Director: Eva Neymann Country: Ukraine Year: 2012 Running Time: 81 min Cast: Dimitry Kobetskoy, Yekarterina Golubeva, Mikail Vekksler This is the second feature film from German-based Ukrainian director Eva Neyman. The film is based on an autobiographical narrative by well-known screenwriter Fridrikh Gorenshtein (“Solaris”) An eight-year-old boy travels with his mother to visit his grandfather during wartime. The mother, who is lying on the floor in a crowded freight car, has typhus and her condition is getting worse. At an unidentified station, she is placed on a stretcher and four men take her to hospital. In this war-torn setting, surrounded by adults preoccupied with their own survival, the boy must shoulder a man's responsibility, take care of his baggage and get a telegram sent to his grandfather, no matter what the cost. Through a child's eyes, we see a country in chaos, grotesque figures on the verge of losing their humanity and families torn apart by the war. Lithuanian cinematographer Rimvydas Leipus recreates a dream-like atmosphere of WWII-era yearning. The minimalist tale unfolds slowly, with hints of Ukrainian cinema legend Kira Muratova palpable in the atmosphere and dialogue, yet the story's narrative is easy to follow and every scene is emotionally charged and captivating. The boy, played by young actor Dmytro Kobetskoy, discovered in an Odessa orphanage - finds the hospital and stays by his mother's side, but she soon dies, and he starts seeking the way home. Placing his trust in strangers. He board a train and the beautiful wintry landscapes glimpsed from the window reflect the steely ice in the souls of the people fighting for their survival. 2 Nov @ 12:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4 Nov @ 12:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront KAUWBOY Director: Boudewijn Koole Country: Netherlands Year: 2012 Running Time: 78 min Cast: Rick Lens, Loek Peters, Cahit Ölmez One day, 10-year-old Jojo brings home a baby jackdaw. He has to keep the jackdaw hidden from his father who doesn't like having birds in the house. Every now and then, Jojo secretly calls his mother but doesn't tell her about his jackdaw friend. He wants to surprise her with the bird on her birthday, which is around the corner. Jojo's father is adamant that he doesn't want to celebrate the birthday of someone who is not present. Since the father suffers from violent mood swings, Jojo has to be very careful. Through his special friendship with the bird and the adaptability that only children possess, Jojo finds a way to break down the wall surrounding his father's heart. 2 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 17:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6
  • 7.

Will he fulfil his dream? 3 Nov @ 15:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 17:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront MIELE Director: Valeria Golino Country: France Italy Year: 2012 Running Time: 100 min Cast: Jasmine Trinca, Carlo Cecchi, Libero De Rienzo, Vinicio Marchioni, Iaia Forte, Roberto De Francesco, Irene lives alone a pretty isolated life.

He must now learn to be a big boy. Jean's father is always busy at work, so he spends most of his time with his nanny Yvette and neighbour Michelle. His mother is away but nobody talks about her. Luckily Michelle is on hand to read postcards about Mum's Wild West escapades and, even though they seem far fetched at times, they keep Jean happy. At school, the steel marbles Jean takes from his father's factory are valuable playground currency but their removal from the factory has unexpected consequences. This delightful, bittersweet animated film, based on the best-selling children's story by Jean Regnaud and Emile Bravo, is a joyous, thought-provoking tale about childhood loss and the need even for adults to hide from the truth at times. A great animation film for ages 7 and above ! 4 Nov @ 20:15 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront SNAILS IN THE RAIN Director: Yariv Mozer Country: Israel Year: 2013 Running Time: 85 min Cast: Yoav Reuveni, Moran Rosenblatt, Yariv Mozer, Yehuda Nahari Boaz, 25, is a good-looking and alluring linguistics student.

The persistent letters make Boaz extremely sensitive. Every man is a potential suspect – but it is his own heterosexuality that Boaz really doubts. He's now haunted by memories from his past, unforgettable moments when he felt attracted to other men. These men manage to disrupt Boaz's daily life with Noa. In his fourth letter, the secret admirer gives Boaz an ultimatum. 5 Nov @ 20:15 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 20:15 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7

Despite a slight physique, Tomás dreams of becoming a bodybuilder and befriends two personal trainers, Libian and Bolognan. The two new acquaintances soon move in with the siblings and while they bring a semblance of structure to the chaotic household, they also offer an opportunity the brother and sister seemingly can't refuse: scamming a wealthy recluse and former action-movie star named Maciste. Framed as a crime drama, Il Futuro is much more. It's also an engrossing meditation on Italy's moviemaking past through Maciste's sword-andsandal career, a provocative exploration of the inevitably corrosive effects of time on the body and long-term relationships and a sensual, melancholic examination of a young woman's unpredictable journey into self-awareness and maturity. 3 Nov @ 20:00 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6 Nov @ 12:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 8

When his friends were discussing about Tokyo, he couldn't help but make up stories about his visit. Although he has never been to Tokyo before, he swears to bring the photos after the weekend to prove himself. By pretending to visit a future university, he is given money by his mother and reluctantly sets off for Tokyo. However, this simple plan goes wrong due to a series of events, which results in him missing the plane home. As he decides to sleep over night at the airport, a middle-aged shop assistant Masami calls out to him. Through several encounters, Kazuya realizes what's important in life and also learns to face his true-self. 5 Nov @ 13:00 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 15:45 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront THE REFEREE (L´Arbitro) Director: Paolo Zucca Country: Italy, Argentina Year: 2013 Running Time: 96 min Cast: Stefano Accorsi , Geppi Cucciari, Jacopo Cullin, Alessio Di Clemente, Marco Messeri Atletico Pabarile, the lamest team in the Sardinian third league, is humbled, as it is every year, by Montecrastu, the team led by Brai, an arrogant wheeler-dealer who is used to vexing Atletico´s peons because he is the biggest landlord in the area. The homecoming of young Matzutzi, who had emigrated, thoroughly shakes up the season, and Atletico Pabarile starts winning one match after another, thanks to the prowess of its new undisputed champion. The film cuts back and forth between the story of the two teams and the rising international career of Cruciani, an ambitious referee at the highest echelons of his profession, as well as the subplot in which two cousins playing for Montecrastu are involved in a feud linked to the archaic codes of sheep breeding. Matzutzi succeeds in winning the heart of Miranda, the daughter of the blind trainer Prospero, while Cruciani gets involved in a corruption scandal which will land him in the gutter: he is caught red-handed, in fact, and sentenced to be exiled to the hell of the Sardinian third league. 3 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 4 Nov @ 20:00 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 9

Yet each one of them came face to face with the price of war when their daughters were killed in the conflict. Instead of seeking revenge, they set out on a joint journey to humanize the very enemy which took the dearest thing from them and prevent the cycle of retaliation in themselves and their societies. Along the way they reveal the friendship and humour that keeps them alive. The film follows their two parallel stories and the moments where they converge, both in their personal experiences and peace work as they face their shattered families, confused communities and opposing society. This is a critical junction in their lives, as their life mission and personal agenda clash and they stand in front of the biggest test to their friendship. 5 Nov @ 15:45 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 7 Nov @ 15:30 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront YOU WILL BE MY SON (Tu seras mon fils) Director: Gilles Legrand Country: France Year: 2012 Running Time: 102 min Cast: Niels Arestrup, Lorànt Deutsch When his business partner François falls terminally ill, the ageing wine mogul Paul must find a new partner. The obvious contender is his keen and hardworking son Martin but Paul has always held Martin in open contempt, for reasons that are shrouded in mystery and familial repression. So when François' dashing and successful winemaker son Philippe drops over from California to visit his sick dad, Paul is provided with a ready-made replacement son and heir - and he makes no secret of his partiality. The scene is set for a Shakespearean struggle for money, territory and parental affection - one that's further complicated by a quirk of French law which allows anyone to be 'adopted' for inheritance purposes, even if they have living parents, and even if there's an existing biological line of succession. This lush family drama builds tension as efficiently and cruelly as a thriller, but ballasts it with an undertow of deep-felt emotion. The cast is also excellent: selected with a rigorous attention to the nuances of their roles, and hugely committed in their performances. Anyone who's seen A Prophet or The Beat That My Heart Skipped knows that Niels Arestrup is an actor to be reckoned with, but here he dominates the piece, and is used to truly dynamic effect. 2 Nov @ 22:00 – Cine 2 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 6 Nov @ 13:00 – Cine 4 Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront 10
