“The AMVCAs are popular and widely followed across Africa, including here in Zimbabwe, and we are pleased to see that plans are advanced for the staging of the latest edition, which promises another tribute to the talent in the world of film across the continent,” she said.

“The choice of Femi Odugbemi to lead the jury is also good news, especially as it reaffirms the high standing and major contribution of the MultiChoice Talent Factory initiative.”

Mrs Njanji said the AMVCA concept had established itself as the benchmark for excellence in the African film industry and each awards event was not only a celebration of excellence in film-making, but also an activity that improved careers and boosted talent development on the continent.

Changes have been made to award categories, with winners of the best actor, best actress, best-supporting actor and best supporting actress categories now determined by the jury.

Mrs Njanji said the organisers and sponsors – Amstel, Pepsi, Promasidor and Martell – had called on DStv viewers across Africa to join in the celebration, starting with the announcement of final nominees in each category.

“This will be done live across all Africa Magic channels at 8 pm on Sunday, March 24, immediately after which the voting portal will open,” she said.

The two-day awards event will start with the Young Filmmakers and Content Creators event on the morning of May 10, followed by the Cultural Day and Opening Night celebration and the Main Awards Ceremony on May 11.

Mrs Njanji said the head judge had described the AMVCAs as ‘celebrated for an unwavering dedication to excellence.’
