Welcome to IDIDTHAT’s monthly series where we shine a spotlight on the women in the South African production industry. SHE DID THAT makes it even easier to find local female filmmakers. Our hope is that this will become a talent showcase and a useful resource to access and discover the right people for your projects. Although we will only be featuring women and non-binary people, the goal is that it will encourage the inclusion of more underrepresented filmmakers across all production work created by South Africans.

Director Kit
Director at Darling Films

CLOSET RAPPER, BINGE WATCHER AND WRITER. Captivated by beauty and motivated by narrative choice since she was 17, Kit is a director who gets right to the heart of her stories with a deadly combination of whimsical pictures and critical thinking. She’s our unicorn. And she’s real. Real good.

Dani Hynes
Director at Made Films

Dani is a director, a writer and a mom, but not necessarily in that order. With her ability to extract nuanced performances and create visually impactful pieces, Dani’s as tricky to pigeon hole as she is to convince to walk near a lizard. She’s won Creative Circle Ad of the Year, among other accolades

Rea Moeti
Director at Platypus

Rea is a South African Film and TV Award winner who currently has two feature narratives on her horizon; a mystery-comedy Netflix original and a dramedy for MNET. Her three award-winning short films show off her narrative and aesthetic flair. Rea has a strong comedic instinct and enthusiasm for working with young performers.
