SHE DID THAT is a female filmmakers showcase that shines a spotlight on the women in the South African production industry. 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. This month features Director Ying-Poi De Lacy from Massïf, Director Vanessa Mojapelo from Rumanya Films and Director Karien Cherry from Giant Films.
