The NFVF and IPO Celebrate the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) Golden Horn recipients
11 April 2016: Following the memorably star-studded tenth edition of the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs), a couple of weeks ago, the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) is once again hosting the country’s finest filmmakers and artists. Over eighty Golden Horn winners were announced at SAFTAs10 and it is time that they are celebrated.
The NFVF, in proud association with the Independent Producers Organisation (IPO) and Glenfiddich will hold the SAFTAs10 Winners Celebration on Thursday April 14, 2016 in Sandton, Johannesburg. Guests will walk down the red carpet from 7:30PM.
“We welcome the Independent Producers Organisation partnership, in celebration of all the SAFTAs’ Golden Horn recipients. This association will go a long way in ensuring that the industry, particularly independent producers continue to be part of the awards as they grow to the next level,” says NFVF CEO Ms. Zama Mkosi.
Newly-appointed Chairperson of the IPO, Akin Omotoso, is very happy to partner with the NFVF and Glenfiddich on this celebratory event. He says, “The time has come for more co-operation in our industry. And in this spirit, the new IPO sees this as an opportunity to not only foster new relationships but also to strengthen old ones. Which can only be beneficial for every producer in the country. Both award-winning and up and coming.”
The NFVF recognises that many Golden Horn recipients reside outside Gauteng. Therefore SAFTAs10 Winners Celebrations will also be taking place in Durban and Cape Town, in the coming months.
