CANNES - Actress Terry Pheto is known for her roles in front of the camera, but she is at the Cannes Film Festival with a project she has been working on behind the scenes.

Pheto is at the event to promote a movie she co-produced called Ayanda.

She told Eyewitness News she's doing her new role as producer.

"Onset is a different story at the festival, so it's my first festival to have met so many amazing people. To be talking about what's my next project and stuff, so it's quite exciting."

She said she's happy with the reaction the film received after its screening.

"This is where movies are made. If people love your film here, it will do well."

Ayanda will have a world premiere in Los Angeles in June.
