International award-winning South African actor, Terry Pheto is one of South Africa's most loved actresses, the super-talented star has just received a British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) Award nomination for her lead role in the movie FACES, in the category, Best Actress.
“It’s always great to work with incredible actors and talented filmmakers from around the world. I always leave projects feeling extremely enriched. To receive an international accolade on top of it, is just a cherry on top,” expresses Terry Pheto.
Released worldwide last year, FACES is a multi-narrative film set across four storylines that follow a group of characters as their lives begin to unravel. The feature film was shot in London and directed by the award-winning British-Nigerian director, Joseph a. Adesunloye.
The movie features other high-profile actors from both music and film such as: Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes playing her first major film role, Aki Omoshaybi (The Riot Club, Kids In Love, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Suzette Llewellyn (EastEnders, Coronation Street, Holby City) and French actor and model Matthieu Charneau (The Bastard Executioner).
FACES will have its UK premier at BUFF taking place from 1 – 7 September 2019 where it will be the closing night film at the festival.
No stranger to the international award stage, Terry Pheto’s nod from BUFF is yet another reminder that talent is universal, and the world is recognizing Terry Pheto among the best.
FACES sees Terry Pheto expand her international movie cataloged, and is one of the few projects the world can expect to see her in front of the camera this year, as her latest projects to be announced soon are predominantly behind the camera.
