Regulation & Policy

The controversial film “Of Good Report”, which was technically ‘banned’ from screening at the Durban International Film Festival in July, has its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Friday 6 September 2013.

Of Good Report is showing at Ster-Kinekor cinemas countrywide after director and writer Jahmil XT Qubeka won an appeal to have his film classified by the South African Film and Publication Board. The controversy surrounding the movie has generated world media attention while Qubeka is gaining international awareness as a ‘director to watch’.
