The festival programme annually consists of debut short and full-length films, discussion panels as well as a glittering awards event – which the winners of the Du Toitskloof Wines competition are naturally invited to.

According to Marius Louw, CEO of Du Toitskloof Wines, the kykNET platform presents a unique opportunity to communicate the cellar’s wine culture.

“As wine sponsor of the popular Kokkedoor programme, Du Toitskloof Wines experienced first-hand how strongly the public identifies with Afrikaans lifestyle television,” says Louw.

“With our sponsorship of the kykNET Silwerskerm Festival, we are expanding our involvement with kykNET to the magical world of original films and local creativity. For us it is a win-win combination: we see wine and its history as a cultural treasure and a true asset to South Africa. And let’s not forget that creativity and winemaking go hand in hand. The grape farmer and the winemaker both have to employ a certain amount of creativity to create the end product, and together we look forward to showcasing our respective works of art to the many creative souls and film stars attending the kykNET Silwerskerm Festival.”
