Local movie 'iNumber Number' will be shown at the highly regarded Cannes Film Festival, which is currently taking place in France.

The film will be showcased by the South African National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), as part of a collection of movies to celebrate 20 years of democracy in the country.

According to Sunday World, 'Miners Shot Dead', 'Nelson Mandela: The Myth and Man', and 'One Humanity' are among the films that will be shown, while three movies by female filmmakers will also be screened.

Said the CEO of the NFVF, Zama Mkosi: "As we celebrate the 20 years of Freedom we reflect on the strides that we have made both as a nation and the local film industry. From a tool that served as propaganda tool for the apartheid regime, the industry has evolved to a conduit for social cohesion and economic vehicle that creates jobs."

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival kicked off on 14 May, and is set to run until 25 May 2014.
