The Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) invites filmmakers from across the world to submit their Short, Documentary or Feature Fiction films to screen in the festival from 13-23 July 2017. The 38th edition of the festival is organized by the University of KwaZulu-Natal's Centre for Creative Arts in partnerships with the Durban Film Office, eThekwini Municipality, National Film and Video Foundation, KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission and other valued funders and partners.

With screenings of cutting-edge cinema from around the world, with special focus on both South African and African films, the festival exhibits films in a range of diverse venues in and around the city of Durban. DIFF is a premiere platform for the launch of African films and a key gateway to the African film industry. The festival also includes an annual local and international awards component.

This year the festival will shine a light upon the ever expanding trend in cinema highlighting the refugee or immigrant stories with our Transit Tales. As the global society expands further every year, cinema has highlighted the stories of subjects as they chase their hopes and dreams for their lives in a new and sometimes unknown land. The festival is looking for feature, shorts and documentaries that chronicle such stories from various corners of the globe.
