The Community Chest Carnival is back, with all the old favourites revived for those who were there for the good old days. But it’s also in with the new … gourmet food trucks, wine tasting, craft beers, phenomenal rides, and a pop-up cinema.
The Community Carnival pop-up cinema will be featuring a series of documentaries paying tribute to music legends every evening throughout the four-day family event at 20:30. It will also include their music videos.
Celebrate the life of starman David Bowie on Wednesday, pay tribute to the most recent member of the 27s club Amy Winehouse on Thursday and jam with Michael Jackson on Friday.
But for the last night of Community Chest Carnival – Saturday 2 April 2016 – the community’s choice of film will be revealed under the stars. Vote for your favourite documentary of a popular artist by sending their name to firstname.lastname@example.org or posting on Community Chest of the Western Cape’s social media.
– it’s your choice as to which music icon will feature on the final night of Carnival where the world meets for good.
The winning documentary will be announced on Facebook and Twitter at 14:00 on Saturday 2 April.
We will be also screening short films made by Teens including a selection from the Ubuntu Youth Film festival and teenfilmmakers.tv every evening from 19:00 -20:00.
Tickets for the Carnival Cinema cost R120, available at the door or from Webtickets. And you can buy any snacks your heart desires in the Carnival food areas to take in with you!
