The NFVF, in collaboration with the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture, is inviting filmmakers to submit proposals for 24-minute short films, both documentary and fiction films, highlighting the contribution of Unsung Heroes. The films will be packaged under the anthology: Not All Heroes Wear Capes, we are seeking documentary and fictional films that will shine a light on an unsung hero from your community, whether dead or alive. This short film will be a personal narrative highlighting their contributions from a liberation, heritage or cultural perspective. The NFVF intends to support 9 films in total, due to the national importance of the topic, it is our intent to select a film from each of the 9 provinces.A total of R450 000.00 will be awarded to each successful project, whether fiction or non-fiction.

Nations are built on the collective (and creative) effort of citizens from all walks of life. Hence the call for authentic stories, reflecting on the legacy of those individuals within communities that touched, transformed or brought about a great difference within their locale or on a national scale; in order to highlight, celebrate and popularize the contribution, impact and achievements of past and present-day heroes and heroines of South Africa.
