‘london recruits’ wins best documentary.


Film industry players celebrated the finest films at the Joburg Film Festival awards ceremony.

The swanky gala dinner took place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg North and was hosted by business news anchor and radio and television presenter Nzinga Qunta and ‘Generations: The Legacy’ actor, singer and producer Aubrey Poo.

Legendary actor Dr. Jerry Mofokeng wa Makthetha introduced the esteemed jury for this year’s festival which boasted an international line-up of highly regarded filmmakers and industry experts, including himself.

Among them were Kenyan-born producer and director Tosh Gitonga, multiple award-winning South African actress Nthati Moshesh, industry finance giant Pape Boye and film festival professional Andrea Voges.

Durban film producer Jacintha De Nobrega’s documentary ‘London Recruits’ claimed the prestigious Best Documentary award of the evening.

When IOL Entertainment previously spoke to De Nobrega she was honoured over the nomination itself and expressed hopes of winning the award.

The documentary opened the festival with a surge of cinematic energy. In his acceptance speech acclaimed filmmaker Gordan Main remarked that the project was a love story of people from different cultures who were hoping for a better world with peace.

Based on true events, ‘London Recruits’ sheds light on a lesser-known chapter of history, offering a compelling narrative that resonates deeply with viewers.
