Hollywood in my Huis is 'n coming-of-age romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a 2004 matric dance in South Africa. The cast features Jana van Tonder; Edwin van der Walt; Vilje Maritz; Louw Venter; Nicola Hanekom; Estelle Terblanche and Elana Afrika.

 The story focuses on an ordinary teenage girl –who lives in an impoverished railway neighbourhood with her dysfunctional parents. When she witnesses Charlize Theron’s iconic Oscar win, Jana is inspired to transform her upcoming matric dance into her very own Hollywood Red Carpet moment.

Written and directed by Corne van Rooyen, Hollywood in my Huis explores two markedly different realities - that of the people eking out a living on the wrong side of the tracks and their privileged counterparts – and the fantasy world in which Jana lives.
