International award-winning motion picture studio, MiclnGrace Studios, has once again bagged international awards. This time the Bryanston-based studio has scooped three Best Shorts Awards for its pilot feature film Rouge Taze: Dark Moon. The film snatched the Experimental Feature Film Award, Leading Actor Award, won by Michael ‘Micl Snr’ Norman for his portrayal as Rogue Taze, and Women Filmmakers Award won by MiclnGrace’s head producer, Grace Norman.
The Best Shorts Competition’s sister competitions are the Accolade Global Film Competition, The IndieFEST Film Awards and Impact DOCS Awards. All four competitions are part of The Global Film Awards family of competitions and have independent judging. The winners were revealed recently virtually. These awards are the latest in a string of successes for MiclnGrace. Prior to the Best Short win, MiclnGrace Studios had bagged a total of four awards, including Burbank International Film Festival Award, Hollywood New Directors Honourable Mention and Best Shorts Competition Award Merits.
"The industry awards we have won have been as a result of our hard work and dedication. We are immensely proud of being recognised as the best by industry professionals and peers. These accolades are proof that we produce some of the best work in the industry, but we want to get even better,” said Grace.
Grace added that being recognised yet again amongst some of the biggest names in the industry was a huge success for MiclnGrace Studios.
"We are delighted and honoured to have received these awards. We work hard to deliver a highly bespoke work and such accolades demonstrate our dedication to our craft," she said.
Micl "Snr" said winning the Leading Actor Award was an honour for him and MiclnGrace Studios. He said the award was an incredible recognition for the quality that South African talent is bringing to the world stage.
"I am proud to deliver outstanding performance in a leading role in a film I also directed. The accolade is the celebration of the spirit of excellence and hard work. I hope that such accolades will be an inspiration to young African actors out there to aspire to deliver award-winning premium performance."
