The award-winning Shepherds and Butchers won the coveted The Maverick Award for Best Feature Narrative and the Hasklell Wexler Award for Best Cinematography at the Woodstock Film Festival this past weekend.
“The Woodstock Film Festival is one of the most respected independent film festivals in North America. We are delighted that Shepherds and Butchers received the festival’s top feature film prize as well as the Best Cinematography Award,” said producer Anant Singh.
“These awards recognise the talents that have come together to craft the film under the expert direction of Oliver Schmitz. It is also a significant achievement as it’s the first time that a South African film has garnered these awards.”
