In the words of the Chief Executive Officer of AMAA, Dayo Ogunyemi, ‘A unique aspect of the nomination event this year is that AMAA's parent organization, the Africa Film Academy (whose advisory board Danny Glover co-chairs) is developing a slate of ten films that will be co-productions between black filmmakers across the globe.
'The stories to be pitched within this slate will have a global appeal but will speak to the aspirations and stories of the global black community. Accordingly the attendees for this event have been selected with a view to ensuring the highest level of returns and enhancing the global value chain for black filmmakers,' Ogunyemi said.
