Meet the guests!
Fabulous opportunity to Meet the Guests and help raise funds for the Festival
Out In Africa has a number of functions during the Festival—-usually only for our guest filmmakers and funders. This year, in an effort to raise funds for the Festival and to make our social events less exclusive, we are offering Festival patrons the opportunity for ‘quality time’ with our guests… at a price. There will be 10 places available at each event.
They are as follows:
Sunday 6 September: Lunch at a really gorgeous country venue about 45 minutes outside of Johannesburg. The repast includes a three course buffet meal and wine in a relaxed atmosphere from noon to 3pm. Dress code is casual. R650 per person. Up to date 8333 members are eligible for a 10% discount. Bookings close Friday 28 August.
Tuesday 8 September: A buffet dinner at the Residence of the Ambassador of Argentina, in Pretoria. This will be a glittering event with a guest list of queer who’s who, diplomats, OIA funders and guests. Queer and mainstream press will be invited to cover the event. Dress code is smart casual. R850 per couple. Up to date 8333 members are eligible for a 10% discount. Bookings close Tuesday 1 September.
Wednesday 9 September: A three course dinner, with wine, at an exclusive restaurant at Montecasino, from 7pm to 9.30pm. Again, all Festival filmmaker guests will be in attendance, as well as a number of funders and diplomats. Dress code is smart casual. R650 per person. Up to date 8333 members are eligible for a 10% discount. Bookings close Tuesday 1 September.
Details for the Cape Town event on Sunday 13 September will be available shortly.
* If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. Please write “Meet the Guests” in the subject line of your email and, of course, the event / date and how many you wish to book for in the body of the mail. Please include your cell number.
* Reservations will be confirmed upon payment. If you are not already an 8333 member you will automatically become one and you will be eligible for give-aways throughout the year, and you will receive an invitation to the 2010 Opening Night in either city, after which your membership will lapse. 8333 membership can be renewed by visiting 8333 on our website www.oia.co.za.
* Cancellations will be refunded if submitted 10 days before the event.
