Senzo Zindela is an award-winning Director and owner of SollywoodFilms.
Senzo has won a Safta Golden Horn Award for establishing the Ugu Film Festival.
This award has opened many doors for him, putting the Port Shepstone district in the spotlight, leading to his recognition as one of the best film producers in KZN.
After seeing neglected talent in Port Shepstone, a talent that Senzo felt was going to change the game of the SA film industry, he decided to initiate a platform to enable emerging film makers from disadvantaged areas to blossom!
The drive to start this informative platform grew stronger after several rejections and closure of doors by film organisations and credible SA producers who were not interested in investing in his concept.
Senzo then established a platform that would be a meeting place to negotiate and conclude real relationships that would produce commercial education and entertaining films that have potential to gross revenues worldwide! Ugu Film Festival was born from that vision, two major relationships had been formed within 4 years of its existence and the production of blockbusters.
The struggle continues for Senzo, and he is continuing to create long term
international relationships with real business people who believe in his vision.
