Feature wins Cadillac Award
“Thina Simunye” (We Are Together) garnered Tribeca Film Festival’s Cadillac Award, determined by audience vote, on Saturday at the closing-night premiere of HBO docu “The Gates.”
“Together,” a doc helmed by Paul Taylor, also received a special jury mention at the fest’s awards ceremony Thursday.
Last week EMI Music secured U.K. theatrical, DVD and soundtrack distribution rights to the pic, which chronicles the lives of children from the Agape Orphanage in South Africa as they form a choir.
Doc is a Rise Films production in association with the Channel 4 British Documentary Foundation and HBO Documentary Films.
