702 popped into the Opening Night of the fourth annual Jozi Film Festival, the festival is being held at Johannesburg's only independent cinema, The Bioscope Cinema in Maboneng.

This year the festival opened with a debut film by young director, Jenna Bass. Bass' creation "Love The One You Love" is a film that tells the parallel stories of everyday South Africans who begin to question the ideals we hold too sacred: love, happiness, and the New South Africa.
