Beyond Forgiving has been selected as one of the finalist for the Africa World Documentary 2014 film festival.  Ginn Fourie and Letlapa Mphahlele MP, protagonists of the award-winning documentary film, have been invited by Initiatives of Change-UK and its partners to take part in a Speaking Tour on healing and reconciliation in May 2014.

Howard Grace, Executive Producer, talks about the film set in post-apartheid South Africa.  'Ginn and Letlapa share a belief that conciliation is the country’s hope and way forward in 'building bridges' in a post apartheid country'.

The Speaking Tour will allow people in different parts of the UK to put their questions directly to Ginn and Letlapa as well as view the film (either again or for the first time). This will be a national campaign with public screenings, seminars and workshop events across the country to raise awareness with an educational outreach for peace building and reconciliation.

The Africa World Documentary Film Festival (AWDFF) is sponsored by the E. Desmond Lee Professorship in African/African American Studies.  The AWDFF has as its objective the promotion of knowledge and culture of the people of Africa in a Pan-African context.   Screenings will take place in multiple locations across the US, Caribbean and Europe; including London from March to September 2014.  In 2007, AWDFF awarded IofC's documentary film The Imam and the Pastor first prize in category of short documentary.
