Everyone is preparing for 2014, and The Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) is not left behind. AMAA has invited filmmakers to submit their works (feature films, short films and documentary) for consideration for the 10th edition of the prestigious 2014 AMAA Awards.
The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2014 and nominations will be announced in the first week of March, and only films produced, premiered and or released between May 2012 and December 2013 are eligible.
The primary aim of the African Movie Academy Awards is to facilitate the development and showcase the social relevance of African Film and Cinema. Presented to recognize excellence in professionals in the Africa film industry, including directors, actors and writers, the Awards are aimed at honoring and promoting such excellence as well as uniting the African continent through arts and culture.
The founder and CEO Peace Anyiam-Osigwe further explains that, “There is this great awareness of the possibilities in Africa. This has been an exciting year for African cinema as many big budget productions have been produced on the continent and distribution is becoming more accessible to African films.”
Submission for the 2014 awards must be entered online at www.ama-awards.com. Each completed entry form must be accompanied by all the supporting materials listed on the submission forms, including the synopsis of the film, the list of credits, 5 DVD copies of the film and proof of the right to submit.
