Local film maker, Senzo Zindela, founder and chairman of the Ugu Film Festival, said that they were excited to see the fruits of the film festival in Port Shepstone.
“One of our USA VIP guests, who attended last year, is now bringing his production to Port Shepstone this August. This is exciting and motivating us to work harder. Imisebenzi iyababonakala!” he said.
British director Charles Henri Belleville, (Jet Trash, The Inheritance) is to direct. Mr Belleville has just completed his second film with superstar and Oscar nominated actor Tom Hardy (Mad Max, Legend).
