A truly South African affair
We are fans of the Trails in Motion Film Festival (which mostly screens international films) and the Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge during the Banff Film Festival. The SA Trail Film Awards are in no way a replication of their good work, as the focus is quite different.
There are currently no other official Awards for South African trail running films that we know of, and our goal is to develop a vehicle to do that.
We think this kind of exposure for South African filmmakers should be encouraged and developed because this will boost creativity and pride in South Africa’s vibrant trail running scene.
We value feedback from fellow creatives who want to make a meaningful difference to the future of South Africa.
