Achievement in Narrative Short: Gobe The Gift – by Gape Ndlovu, Masego Mohwasa, Kevin Sebolao (Botswana)

Set in Silicon Valley, California, the high-tech capital of the world, SVAFF is a highly respected destination event that draws hundreds of out of state and international guests. Voted 2015 Best of Silicon Valley, SVAFF is the only film festival in California that is exclusively focused on films made by African filmmakers. The festival has built a substantial following and has become an annual destination film event that draws out of state and international guests to Silicon Valley.

Aptly themed “Africa through the African lenses”, the mission of the Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF) is to promote an understanding and appreciation of Africa and Africans through moving images.

All filmmakers received official certificates of participation and those in attendance received “goody bags” crammed full of treats. The Board can also choose to honour a filmmaker, patron or friend of the festival with an award not listed.

Congratulations, guys and way to go!
