White Gold Wins Big At The Pan African Film Festival

White Gold Wins Big At The Pan African Film Festival. Just a few weeks ago Refilwe Modiselle took to Twitter appealing to anyone who can sponsor her trip to the Pan Africa Film Festival to come forward and lend a helping hand.

The good news is that the actress and media personality made it to the US and her film also won big. White Gold won Best Short Narrative in the Oscar 2021 qualifying category.

Refilwe, plays the character of Mansa on the film which highlights the scourge faced by people living with Albinism. She shared the news with an inspirational note, “This is for all the kids that were made to believe they were never enough, or that they don’t fit in… Or that a person wouldn’t amount to societal expectations… This is for you child, this is for you black child.”

So after we WON @lukebradford_art_film & I thought we'd prank the @thepitchwhitegold team with this video to send home pretending to have bad news… But alas 🤣🤣🤣 This accomplishment is beyond blessings. Amongst 19 nominees we took the honour of being awarded. BEST SHORT NARRATIVE at the Pan African Film Festival 2020 in LA. The biggest black fillm festival in the U.S I can't even begin to express how massive this is. A woman with albinism in an amazing story as a lead gets to showcase to the world why God is the master of one's destiny, my first international lead role for an international short film that had the most amazing cast & crew & now we qualify for Oscars 2021 consideration…, 😭😭😭😭 what a dream. I'm stlll trying to take it all in. I don't think one anticipated the impact it's making. This is bigger than us…. Bigger than what I could ever imagine because it opens up many things to think about & act on. I'm so grateful to God & for the love & support. Kea leboha, Ngiyabonga.
