SAIFA – South African International Film Academy
Mr. Mallik Arjun Reddy Nannuri founder/ceo hosted the SAIFA Movie Awards 2019 on the of 28th September 2019 at the Lyric Theatre, Goldreef city Johannesburg, along with their Advisory Panel which consisted of Laxman Reddy Vennapu , Farzana Mayet, Fakir Hassan, Yashika Singh, Shireen Ebrahim, Hitesh Bakta, Rosa Van Niekerk, Dharam Sewraj, and Mr.G Venkateshwer Reddy.
The interesting part is that the SAIFA name was given by Mallik’s wife, Apoorva Reddy who is a Software Techie.
The show was MCed by Shaky Russel and Leote Taylor and this star-studded show also paid Rock Tribute to the Legends Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, and the one and only Queen.
What was truly remarkable was the visual montage played to honor all the past South African movie icons. This showed us that even if they’re gone, their work will always live on.
A talented Brass Band, a phenomenal Fashion Show, and multi-talented Bollywood Performances by Academies : Maza & Nishka contributed to the huge success of the evening.
We hope that as these types of award ceremonies take place that it will encourage more and more people to pursue the arts.SAIFA Vision is to make South Africa a compelling movie hub.
SAIFA mission is to acknowledge and encourage the ‘Made in SA’ movie brand internationally and thereby attract the world movie market to invest and produce movies
