Breyten Breytenbach Festival

08 Jul 2016 - 10 Jul 2016
A Celebration of literature – books and movies / 'n Fees van literatuur – boeke en films
8 to 10 July 2016 is the 5th Breyten Breytenbach Book Festival in Montagu. Experience a season in paradise made possible by our sponsors: Cape Dry; The Montagu Bookshop; Movie Galaxy and Montagu-Ashton Tourism.

Join in the excitement with amazing authors such as Marita van der Vyver: Van 'Griet skryf 'n Sprokie' tot 'Marita maak 'n movie'. Marita se roman Dis koue kos, skat word binnekort landwyd uitgereik as 'n rolprent. Sy het die draaiboek saam met regisseur Etienne Fourie geskryf en is saam met Deon Meyer mede-vervaardiger van die rolprent. Sy gesels oor die lokvalle en lekkertes wanneer jy 'n boek in 'n fliek verander.

Join the conversation around award-winning books such as Nagmusiek by Stephanus Muller; meet Francis Galloway, the woman behind the now famous Vlam in die Sneeu and settle in for the new addition to the festival - some thought-provoking movies. Recently launched Afrikaans movie, Sink, will move the audience.

The event is happening at the KWV Gallery in Montagu with live music, food stalls, wine and coffee bar/bookshop throughout the entire weekend – every book lover’s dream.

Tickets are available at R75 per day – or get your full weekend pass for only R100 – giving access to all the presentations, talks and movies.

The KWV Courtyard, filled with food stalls, friendly locals, wine tasting and live music is open to all for Free – so just join the FUN!!

Reserve your seat for the special opening event on Friday evening: Wine, Music and Song – a festive evening of pairing music and wine and food, sponsored by Mimosa Wines.
