The inaugural SAAF 2013 will showcase seven South African films and seven musical artists representing the diversity of the South African experience at free events over two days. Highlights include Saturday's outdoor "South African Music Festival" at Grand Performances and a day of South African films screening on Sunday at Regal Cinemas L.A.
