Three new categories have been added to the already existing AMVCAs categories.

The three new categories for the upcoming edition  are 'the best East African Movie', and 'the best West African movie.'

The announcement was made at Sarova Stanley Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, during an event where a panel of representatives from M-Net West and East Africa discussed preparations for the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) with East African filmmakers and members of the press.

"The purpose of today’s session is to inform all stakeholders in the East African film and television industry of entries for the 2016 edition of the AMVCAs.

"This is particularly important, given that we have new categories for next year’s edition, and have also eased the entry process so that filmmakers across the continent can send in their works.

"For the upcoming edition, there are three new categories which are the best East African Movie, the best Southern African Movie and the best West African movie.

"All these are voting categories, and will exist side by side with the best overall movie in Africa. This is indeed an exciting opportunity for East African filmmakers to not only submit their films, but also actively contribute to the retelling of the East African story through their craft," Mathore said, making the announcement.
