Greg Latter’s BLACK BUTTERFLIES cleans up at the South African Film and TV Awards 2012


The Greg Latter scripted BLACK BUTTERFLIES, having already experienced awards success at the Tribeca Film Festival and Dutch film awards The Golden Calves, enjoyed a triumphant homecoming, winning the majority of the film prizes - including best feature film - at the South African Film and TV Awards ceremony on Sunday evening (11th March).

After its American release last week, BLACK BUTTERFLIES was nominated in nine categories, and ended up garnering the awards for Best Feature Film; Best Cinematography; Best Production Design; Best Music Composition; Best Costume Design and Best Hair and Make-up in a Feature Film.

The South African Film and Television Awards, or the Golden Horns, are now in their sixth year. They are awarded by the National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa for excellence in the creative visual arts, performance and drama. Previous winners of the main award include the Oscar winning Tsotsi and another of Greg's films, Goodbye Bafana.

Greg's latest project, NIGHT TRAIN TO LISBON, directed by the Palme D'Or, Academy Award and Golden Globe winning Bille August, went into production last week.
