2011-06-01 09:11

The world premiere of the film 2010 – Once In A Lifetime: The Movie, which focuses on the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa, and the excitement and jubilation this global event brought to the country and the African continent, will take place in Johannesburg next Wednesday.

Producer Anant Singh made the announcement today and said Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula would be the guest of honour at the premiere.

The film will have its television premiere on Friday, June 10 at 8pm on DStv’s SuperSport 3 to mark the anniversary of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

The film, which is co-produced with SuperSport, has Singh and MultiChoice Group CEO Imtiaz Patel as producers, and award-winning director Junaid Ahmed at the helm.

2010 – Once In A Lifetime: The Movie explores South Africa’s successful hosting of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, integrating inspiring visuals, exhilarating music and compelling interviews with a range of people – from Fifa and local organising committee officials, government representatives, high-profile personalities, celebrities and, most importantly, the man in the street.

It is narrated by renowned international football commentator and Guinness World Record holder John Helm.

The film captures the passionate commitment and vision of South Africa and the continent to the beautiful game.

This film celebrates the spirit and the magic of a very unique Fifa World Cup – the first African World Cup.

“The film is important as it gives a South African perspective of the most successful football World Cup in history, and the spirit of euphoric emotion that engulfed our nation and the African continent,” commented Singh.

“It is already a year and Once In A Lifetime will give audiences the opportunity to relive the magic of the World Cup.”
