Films can only be rented for non commercial screenings by cultural institutions, such as art galleries, film clubs, museums, as well as by educational institutions, such as schools, colleges and universities. The Goethe-Institut Johannesburg Film Archive caters for the entire Southern Africa. Private persons cannot lend out these films.

Before renting a film for the first time, please register with us.

In addition, we offer the following services:
