Due to the incredible reception of ‘Nommer 37’ – Gambit’s latest short film – at the 2014 Silwerskerm Festival, we are pleased to announce that the project has officially been picked up for feature development. At the festival, scribe Daryne Joshua claimed the award for Best Script while co-directors Travis Taute & Nosipho Dumisa took home the award for Best Directors. The feature film is slated to go into production as early as April next year with a release date late in 2015. We look forward to bringing you updates on this exciting development!
The World Congress of Science and Factual Producers (WCSFP) is a member-run, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to celebrating the best in science and history programs and all other related genres and programming. The WCSFP is the place where the science, history and content-rich factual media community gathers to share, explore and reveal how science and history are communicated to the world. Gambit’s Benjamin Overmeyer will join a delegation of South African producers under the banner of the Association for Transformation in Film and Television (ATFT) in attending the WCSFP in Hong Kong from the 18th to the 21st of November this year. Attending this exciting platform from which to kickstart some of Gambit’s original content, we wish him all the best! Stay tuned as we bring you updates on related exciting developments.
