The 6th South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) were staged at Gallagher Estate in Midrand on 9 and 10 March. Organised by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), they were supplied by Gearhouse South Africa and produced for SABC 3 by Clive Morris Productions (CMP) in association with Grooves Productions.
With the venue confirmed only three weeks before 9 March, the awards were planned and executed in just under 30 days. Owing to an unforeseen change of dates, they were also not broadcast live as anticipated and had to be edited for broadcast on Sunday in a very short space of time. All said and done, it was fantastic that all teams involved pulled off an event of this nature in such a short space of time.May 17, 2012 Read More
