Woodwind in competition at Cape Town International Film Festival
8 September 2017
South African director Fin Manjoo’s debut feature film, Woodwind has been selected in the official competition at the 10th Cape Town International Film Festival.
This year the festival moved from the Cape Winelands to Cape Town’s Waterfront and will also boast an international film market. Woodwind is nominated for the Grand Prix Best Film, Best Director, Best Debut Film, as well as Best South African Film and is also in contention for other cast and crew awards, to be determined by an international jury.
Woodwind’s international cast and crew hail from five continents. The drama about a music composer, Bonifaz who goes to India to solve a mystery, stars Argentine actor Leandro Taub, who’s also starring in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Endless Poetry (Poesia sin Fin) which is currently released across the United States and Europe. An emotional Taub dubbed Woodwind his best performance.
