AMAA announces entry deadlines for 2018



The Africa Film Academy (AFA) has invited filmmakers to submit their films for the 14th edition of its annual Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), scheduled for June 2, 2018.



The film entry areas include Feature length films, Shorts, Animation and Documentary works to compete in about 30 categories of the awards.



Organisers say the deadline for all submissions which is on Film Freeway – https://filmfreeway.com/festival/africamovieacademyawards-882089; on www.amaasubmissions.comand and any of the AMAA offices across Africa, is January 30, 2018, while late entry deadline is put at February 14, 2018. Submission is on Film Freeway and in any of the AMAA offices across the continent.



Nominations into the award proper is expected to be announced in April, ahead of June 2, 2018 when the show will hold and be televised globally.



It is required that only films produced and released between June 2016 and January 2018 may be entered for the award.



Organisers say the primary aim of the AMAAs is to facilitate the development and the showcasing of the social relevance of African film and cinema. The awards are presented to recognise and honour excellence in professional filmmaking in the African film industry and the African Diaspora.



Over the years, the award presentation has been attended by numerous international media representatives, Hollywood celebrities, Nigerian politicians, other African politicians, journalists, film industry professionals, and actors and actresses from across Africa.



The 2017 African Movie Academy Awards took place on July 15, 2017 at the Eko Hotels Convention Center in Lagos. The exciting and glitzy event was hosted by notable Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe Etim.



For this year’s event, organisers say filmmakers must ensure that 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, marketing stills of the film, filmographies of the directors and producers, copies of the film in 3DVDS or a hard drive plus a compulsory online submission via vimeo / we transfer and proof of the right to submit. All films must also indicate the year of copyright.



They say the Academy will not accept any film that exceeds the 120-minute run as a feature or a short film that is longer than 40 minutes.
