Nosipho Dumisa

This South African woman just won the Cheval Noir Jury Prize for Best Director at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Canada for her debut motion picture, Number 37.

According to the Jury:

Nosipho Dumisa demonstrates sensitivity and elegance with her debut feature, a Hitchcockian noir transplanted to the gritty slums of Capetown. Displaying an assured level of finesse and precision, the direction allows all elements of the film to breathe, and to shine – even at gunpoint.

Although this is her debut film, she has worked on scripts for commercials, television pilots, reality, lifestyle shows and short films. She is also a producer of South African TV series called Suidooster.
