Winners of the non-fiction categories of the 6th annual South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAS) were announced at a glittering ceremony held at Gallagher Estate in Midrand on Friday the 9th of March 2012.
SAFTAs Committee Chairperson Eddie Mbalo says he is very impressed with the growing standards shown by local productions. "Having been involved with the industry for so many years, it brings me joy to witness the South African Film and Television industry becoming so competitive and dynamic. I know there is still a long road ahead but at the same time I believe we must acknowledge and celebrate the road that we have already travelled," said Mbalo.
