We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the People’s Choice Awards as voted by our festival attendees. Congratulations to the filmmakers!

Best Feature FilmFrontieres

Borders is part road movie, part geography lesson, part examination of the political economy of West Africa, part thoughtful and complex feminist statement. And it’s 100% entertaining, with fascinating characters, terrific acting and a compelling narrative.

Best Documentary FilmSisters of the Wilderness

Sisters of the Wilderness explores the plight of the iMfolozi wilderness itself – severely threatened by open-cast coal mining on its border, and the highest rates of rhino poaching in more than a century.


An enormous thank you our festival co-presenter SFU Woodward’s, all the attendees, volunteers, community partners and sponsors – we couldn’t have pulled the festival off without your ongoing support! If you have questions or comments about the films or VSAFF, please feel free to email us.
