Here are our Cape Town events, each proving that the international Short&Sweet movement is the leader in experiential cinema:

‘Last Ones Out’ Premiere’s at The Castle (2015)

Last Ones Out

Witness the first African zombie feature film selected by the NFVF for the Cannes Film Festival Market 2015, starring Greg Kriek and Christia Visser.

– Watch one of 2015’s hottest SA films from the rooftop of Cape Town’s Castle
– Special interactive premiere with genre activations
– Cast and Crew Film Maker’s QnA
– A never-before-seen experience, first of its kind in SA

Is there a zombie concept Hollywood hasn’t exploited yet?

Seems they’ve tried everything… except for what Capetonian filmmakers Howard James Fyvie and Greg Kriek have done with their latest movie, LAST ONES OUT. Forget the traditional zombie apocalypse happening in major American cities, this Cannes Film Festival catalogue movie visualises a scenario where there is an outbreak of a zombie virus in Africa, which makes Ebola look like a hiccup.

Being the first ever zombie thriller movie filmed in Southern Africa – LAST ONES OUT is a gripping drama of four travelers trying to make it out alive. The cradle of humankind as we know it could be at its end…
