After having to postpone the inaugural event last year, the drive-in movie event at Nantes Park has gone ahead with great success.
Held on Saturday 20 March, the park was open to around 100 cars for the free event from 17:00 to 22:00.
The event included performances from the cast of the hit series Melody and screening of the movie Grease and others.
The initial vent was meant to take place on Wednesday 16 December, with a follow-up event in January, but was postponed due to a spike in Covid-19 infections at the time.
Organising committee members Zelda Hintsa and Theo Davids said the event forms part of alternative measures to reach audiences in light of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the film industry.
The event is organised by Gemini Twins Film and TV Productions in collaboration with Bridgetown Theatre Company.
Partners in the event include the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), SABC, City of Cape Town, the HCI Foundation, Golden Arrow, the Film and Publication Board and the Silvertown and Bridgetown neighbourhood watches.
“In essence, this project will build capacity that should enhance the imperatives for the successful delivery of the drive-in project as envisaged.
“The success of this project is dependent not just on Gemini Twins Film’s input but also on all stakeholders’ effort and willingness to cooperate without reservation or prejudice,” says Davids.
