London born, to a Libyan father and a Capetonian mother, Khalid Shamis S.A.G.E  studied film language in London and rose the ranks as a promo director in the satellite television realm, blasting ‘made-for-TV’, pop content from the West into the Arab world, winning a PROMAX Europe in 2001. Wishing to fulfil a dream to explore the life and legacy of his maternal grandfather, he moved to Cape Town in the mid 2000s. The documentary, Imam and I (2011) won a SAFTA, the audience award at the Encounters International Documentary Film Festival and became a document on the histories of the Muslim community in South Africa. His second feature doc, The Colonel’s Stray Dogs (2021)premiered at Hot Docs in April 2021

Ronelle Loots S.A.G.E is probably South Africa’s best known, most talented and most loved feature editor! A multi award winning editor,  proud recipient of numerous SAFTA feature film and documentary awards and honoured with many festival awards for editing, her extensive filmography includes several notable productions, including, among many more, Four CornersMaster Harold and the BoysU-Carmen eKhayelitshaForgivenessPaljas and Rafiki.

His work has played at major film festivals across the world, including opening the Panorama section at the Berlin Film Festival with Flatland (2019), competing for the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival with Mlungu Wam (2021), and winning (as editor and co-director) the Best Documentary Prize at the National Geographic All Roads Film Festival for The Creators: South Africa Through the Eyes of its Artists (2011).
