Now in its 8th year running, the Simon “Mabunu” Sabela KZN Film and Television Awards, are aimed at celebrating the craft of filmmaking and to encourage aspiring and established local film makers. The awards have since 2013 celebrated heroes, legends and veterans who have made a mark in the film industry.
The Simon Sabela Film and Television Awards are a closed event, which is strategically aligned with the Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) which is one of the biggest event in the calendar of events in film as it attracts filmmakers from all the world with emphasis on the celebration of African Content. The Simon “Mabhunu” Sabela KZN Film and Television Awards is therefore attended by DIFF delegates and local film makers.
The awards have grown from 5 categories to over 27 categories in 2020. This is a good sign of growth and development within the KwaZulu-Natal province. The growth also speaks to the amazing talent that continues to position KwaZulu-Natal as a force to be reckoned with in both Film and Television.
