Filmmaker Uga Carlini, President of Towerkop Creations, takes one of two top awards at SUSTAIN OUR AFRICA short film competition.
By cultivating awareness, showcasing inspirational stories and hosting practical tools for change, Sustain our Africa will develop awareness, engender inspiration and action through collaborative dialogue, by showcasing stories of CHANGE and case studies, demonstrating that there are solutions available as for the first time in the history of mankind we have one common cause to fight for. One cause that we all can believe in. One cause that will change us all. This cause supersedes race, colour, status, creed, religion, nation, political belief or ego. The cause is a fight for our collective survival on the only planet we can call home.
