Director Tim Greene's Skeem Wins
Audience Choice Award At Abu Dhabi

Shoreline Entertainment is handling sales on Skeem, which walked away with the Audience Choice Award at the recent Abu Dhabi Film Festival October 2011. Executive Producer and CEO of Shoreline Morris Ruskin commented: "It is a very entertaining film on every level. I'm absolutely thrilled to see it connect with an international audience."

Selected to compete in the Showcase section of the festival, Skeem won out in competition against films by legendary directors such as Martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders, George Clooney, Steven Soderbergh, Werner Hertzog and Terry Gilliam.

Director Tim Greene is equally pleased and said: "If you look at the cast lists of the films we were competing against, they're all A-list Hollywood celebs! It just makes me feel so proud of our local talent. To be recognized and honored in this way is so humbling. I set out to make a film that people would want to see, and so to know that they enjoyed it is immensely gratifying."

Producer Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat added, "It was such a great honor just to be included. To actually win the audience award is a dream come true. To think that our local comedy film can travel and can be relevant to a global audience and compete successfully with the best films in the world gives me hope for the future of South African films."

SKEEM is a classic mile-a-minute caper movie and Greene milks plenty of madcap mayhem from this farce about a motley collection of small-time crooks and greedy holidaymakers at a rundown resort who are plotting against each other to get their hands on a cardboard box full of cash. Skeem is propelled by a strong ensemble cast of talented South African actors, which includes Grant Swanby, Kenneth Nkosi, Rapulana Seiphemo, Casey B Dolan, Terence Bridgett, Zikhona Sodlaka, David Isaacs and Kurt Schoonraad.

Shoreline Entertainment is one of the longest running and respected production companies and worldwide sales agencies. They have brought close to two hundred films to the marketplace and have handled films with actors such as James Franco, Ellen Page, Timothy Olyphant, Adrien Grenier, Aaron Johnson, Marisa Tomei, just to name a few. The company also has an animation division, a foreign language division and a documentary division. Every year Shoreline films are invited to and compete in the major film festivals. The Maid was nominated for a 2010 Golden Globe for best Foreign Language Film.
