THOMAS ALLEN HARRIS' TWELVE DISCIPLES OF NELSON MANDELA: A SON'S TRIBUTE TO UNSUNG HEROES was also recognised as Best Documentary, and Akeelah And The Bee, starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Basset won the Starbucks PAFF Audience Award.

Tsotsi has also been nominated in the Foreign Film category at this year's (06) Oscars.
