Hemp Documentary Wins Audience Choice Award

BRINGING IT HOME, the documentary feature film about industrial hemp has won the Silver Tree Audience Choice Award at the inaugural Cape Town Eco Film Festival.


After every screening at the Festival, audience members were asked to give each of the films they had just watched a score between 1 (poor) and 5 (excellent). A total of 1167 votes were cast during the Festival.

As the film that received the highest average score, BRINGING IT HOME is the first recipient of the Silver Tree Audience Choice Award, named after the beautiful indigenous Silver Tree (Leucadendron argenteum), a member of the protea family that grows only on a few spots on the slopes of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head on South Africa’s Cape Peninsula.
