It’s not often that a privately funded feature film gets an overseas distribution deal let alone makes its money back. Local indie filmmaker Andrei Gostin may be one of those exceptions. He was one of three producers who behind SA made Carmilla Hyde (2010), written and directed by Dave de Vries. It’s collected a whole bouquet of laurels from all over the world and all with a budget of 16 thousand dollars.

Mandy came in first place last year in the 24 Hour Film Challenge and he short film Turnstiles was screening in the “home grown” category at the festival.
