Khutsong writer and director wins award

A 21-year-old filmmaker from Khutsong has won the coveted best film director and co-writer categories of City Varsity’s Maboneng Film Festival in Johannesburg on 25 November. A delighted Sphiwe Nhlumayo said it felt wonderful to win something as he had never won anything in high school. After the best films of the festival were chosen, six of them were screened. The awards ceremony was held on the same day and, in the end, it was ‘Dipuo’ that emerged victorious. The film also won the Best Overall Film category. ‘It felt like watching our first baby walking when it was screened. ‘It was an amazing experience to shoot and work with different people – it proves that teamwork makes dreamwork. We invested money in the project as we had a beautiful story to tell and we have had amazing feedback,’ he said.gladiator
