Why AMVCA Remains The Biggest Celebration Of Film Talent & Creativity Across Africa
24 African actors and 44 filmmakers from various countries were announced as nominees for the 7th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), which has been hailed as Africa’s biggest celebration of film and TV talent on the continent.
A total of 43 films released between April 1, 2018 and November 30, 2019, received nominations.
The nominations packed a varied crew of creatives and technical support staff into honour groups, where they stand a chance to win the coveted AMVCA statuette in recognition of their outstanding performances which have contributed to the growth of the industry.
Several of your favourite movies received a mention, along with movies that although critically sound and daring struggle to attract mass attention and viewership due to the small size of their market or distribution constraints.
The movies, Living in Bondage: Breaking Free and God Calling both led with 11 nominations each in categories including; Best Director, Best Picture Editor and Best Cinematographer.
