The winners of the 6thEdition of the newly revamped Kalasha International Film & TV Awards 2015 were unveiled last Friday (30th October 2015) at a colorful gala event held at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).  The guest of honor in the event attended by the crème of the industry was CS for sports, culture and arts Dr Hassan Wario, who emphasized on the need for Kenya’s film industry to have an identity. The event Mc'd excellently byone Israel Rober Burale, saw many new comers into the industry get the coveted Kalasha trophy but outstandingly, Jacky Kaboi could perhaps be the biggest winner of the night after she becomes the 1st actor in the history of Kalasha to scoop a 2nd acting award a fete many critics had said wouldn't happen soon.

Much has been said about Kalasha with criticism from industry players about the organisation and "fairness" of the awards in recent years but perhapsall this criticism is finally being put into consideration by the kenya Film Commission. The awards were preceeded by a film festival and market that took place at KICC which saw different production companies and media outlets showcase their products with workshops in different fields also taking place.

Below is the list of the Winners for Kalasha 2015 and a big congratulations to all.
