Cultural Producers 2024

Filmmaker / Festival Curator / Suurbraak

Rae Human started her career in filmmaking having worked in the ranks of production in both the independent film and international studio space since 2012. Her screenwriting achievements include being invited to pitch at content markets such as Durban International Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Gothan Film Week. Recently, her editing accolades saw her working in post-production episodes of Spinners – a Showmax and Studio Canal+ co-production.

Since being involved in the field of impact producing, she has relished an opportunity to be the schools campaign facilitator on the Murder in Paris documentary. Human founded the Roots Film Festival in 2023 through the support of the Encounters Film Festival and National Film and Video Foundation, which saw a revitalising of community bioscope culture in both urban and rural spaces. With the success of the festival’s maiden run, she hopes to build on the ethos of the event in the years to come.
