Sarah Summers is on the board of the Black Filmmakers Film Festival. She was selected to direct one of the three 2016 Reeltime Competition Films during the Shnit International Film Festival. Her last short, Gatvol is premiering at the Durban Film Festival. She has been selected as one of 10 young film makers to be mentored in the NFVF’s Young Filmmakers Program. She has directed a number of short films, worked on radio and in TV and is currently in post-production with her feature documentary Strandloper, centred around her experience embarking on 1000km Indigenous Liberation walk with a group of Khoi activists.

She is also co-creator of the webseries Coloured Mentality which has become a leading platform to discuss South African coloured identity. She has been selected as the South African representative on the OXFAM steering community for their LGBTQI Southern Africa project BUZA project. She was also recently named one of The Mail and Guardians 17 people to watch in 2017. Her vision, powered by a strong work ethic, is to promote the growth of her community through film.
