AFDA Cape Town 3rd year CMS student, Si Postlethwaite and 2016 CMS graduate, Andrea Kloppers, bagged the Best Creative Makeup and the Billy Preston Emerging Talent Awards, at the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South Africa International Film Festival for their production “SHE”. They were also nominated in the Best Art Direction and Best Emerging Talent categories.
“While Andréa and myself conceptualized and played a massive role in all departments our whole crew and half the cast was compiled of AFDA students whom we could not have created the production without.” says Si.
The Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Fashion Film Festival is one of the most creative and inspiring Fashion Film Festivals globally. The festival brings together creatives in the Film, Fashion, Artistic and related technical industries to celebrate their craft twice a year.
The 2014/15/16 festivals held in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, has consistently delivered a world class platform for both local and international speakers, film makers, fashion designers and guests to mingle, sip champagne, indulge in the finest food and take in the inspiring Fashion Films on offer.
Once again supported by Mercedes-Benz South Africa, Bokeh 2017 took the festivities up a notch by fostering the all important relationships among designers, film makers, producers and clients. The festival in April took place over 2 days and 2 nights at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom at Canal Walk. The city is already a top destination for fashion shoots and a prime location for international film crews and has a wealth of local talent in both the fashion and film industries. This event has provided the perfect opportunity to marry these two thriving industries in the city.
