SA Film Wins Award Ahead of World Premiere at US Festival
STROOP - Journey into the Rhino Horn War, the locally made documentary film, has been awarded the 2018 Green Tenacity Award by the judges of the Eighth Annual San Francisco Green Film Festival. This comes ahead of the film's world premiere at the festival which will run from Thursday September 6 through to Friday, September 14.
What makes the win and the premiere all the more impressive is the fact that the festival organisers received 350 submissions but ultimately only 26 films were selected to screen and, of those, only five have received awards.
Says a delighted Bonné de Bod, who produces and fronts the film: "We are over the moon at receiving this prestigious award and it makes all our hard work and dedication to this film that much more worthwhile.
"Hopefully, it also means that the recognition will create additional awareness and encourage even more people to see the film when it releases."
According to the festival's criteria, the Green Tenacity Award is given to filmmakers "who show great tenacity in exploring crucial environmental issues in their work."
