leaving the filmmakers feeling grateful and humbled.

Ster-Kinekor Entertainment, the distributor of Vir Altyd, has released

and everyone involved on this achievement,’ said Pieter Geldenhuys

After the movie’s success, Ivan Botha and Donnalee Roberts, writers, co-producers
and leading actors of the film, say: “It’s such a great honour and privilege for us to
reach this milestone. We’re indescribably grateful to each and every person who
has watched Vir Altyd, the feedback has been overwhelming and we
appreciate it endlessly! We really hope that the support for Vir Altyd
will build momentum for all the upcoming local films that will release this year in
order for our South African film industry to go from strength to strength!’
