South Africa’s Documentary Filmmakers’ Association (DFA) has released a letter of congratulations to Cape Film Commissioner, Denis Lillie, on his election as a member of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
The DFA letter reads: Denis Lillie’s election to the Academy demonstrates that the Western Cape film community is being led by someone who commands respect and is held in high regard internationally for his contribution to film and television.
Denis’s election also means that he is operating at a global level and will add value back home with his understanding of best practices.
The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a membership based organisation comprised of leading media and entertainment figures from over 50 countries and 500 companies from all sectors of television including internet, mobile and technology.
