'Four Corners' was the only film from African soil to be nominated in this year's category for Best International Motion Picture alongside Golden Globe winner "The Great Beauty", and celebrated films "Blue is the warmest color", "Wajda", "The Hunt" and "The Past". Belgium's "Broken Circle Breakdown" took home the award in this competitive category.

Gabriel said "A warm congratulations to Broken Circle Breakdown. It's a huge honour for us to have received the nomination and to be in such excellent company. The international attention gives great status to our independent film from the Cape Flats and shows the Press Academy's support behind our story of hope and redemption."

A local highlight for the film is this week's nomination for the Design Indaba 2014 Mboisa Award. The annual Design Indaba Expo ignites debate about what constitutes beauty through their "Most Beautiful Object in South Africa" competition, with cultural commentators and editors nominating objects they consider to be SA's most beautiful. The winner is decided via public vote, and will be announced on Sunday 2 March, during the closing of the Design Indaba weekend in Cape Town.

Four Corners releases nationwide on the 28 March.
