Miners Shot Down has been awarded the South African Film and Television Award for Best Documentary and for best Achievement in Sound.
The SAFTA’s are presented by the National Film and Video Foundation, an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture. The documentaries nominated for the prestigious awards are described as “reflections of the hard-won achievements and the ongoing social challenges that South Africa remembers on Human Rights Day.” We are very proud to have Miners Shot Down included among the documentaries nominated as tributes to Human Rights Day and we sincerely hope that in winning the award the film will be aired on local broadcast channels.
