Flock Eventing Platform was thrilled to play a role in this year’s prestigious Simon Sabela Awards which honours achievements in the film and television industry.
Mike Lysko, the Founder and CEO of the Flock Eventing Platform says the company hopes to assist in the initiative for many years to come.
The 8th annual Simon Sabela Awards took place on the 12th of September 2020 at the International Film Festival in Durban. The Awards recognise the outstanding talent and achievements of role players within the South African film and television industry, from actors, producers, directors through to film and television technicians.
Flock Eventing Platform was tasked with creating an interactive app for the event organizers that allowed the attendees to access all relevant information straight from their mobile phones. Event attendees could, for example, live stream the ceremony, view information about the nominees, upload their red carpet looks and view the winners.
The annual award ceremony is held each year in honour of South African’s first black film director and icon, Simon “Mabhunu” Sabela, who was a legend both on the big and small screen. Mr Sebela had a long and successful career in film and was featured in over 34 movies both locally and internationally.
The awards initiative was started by the South African Department of Economic Development Tourism and Environmental Affairs and is implemented annually by the KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission.
