2012 Kalasha Film/TV Awards (Kenya) – winners

The Kenya Film Commission hosted the fourth annual Kalasha Film and Television Awards ceremony on Saturday evening at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre.

The film Nairobi Half Life by Tosh Gitonga dominated the night with five wins, including the top prizes of Best Feature Film and Best Director. It also won for Best Actor (Joseph Wairimu), Screenplay and Cinematography. Nairobi Half Life is Kenya's first ever submission to the Academy for consideration as Best Foreign Language Film.

It won the Best Feature Film category against competition from Lost In Africa, Shattered and Senior Pastor. The only award claimed by those three was a Best Actress win for Rita Dominic in Shattered.

The short film Simiyu Samurai, about a young man returning home after twelve years, picked up four awards. In addition to Best Short Film, it won for Best Supporting Actress (Eclay Wangira), Editing and Sound.
