Ghanaian movie selected for two African film festivals

Watching 'The Chronicles of Odumkrom - The Headmaster' - reminded me so much of my school days reading Shakespeare.

So it is a delight to learn that the Ghanaian film, by Trumpet Africa, has been selected for not one but two film festivals.

The festivals are West African Film Festival  (WAFF) in Texas and the Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF).

WAFF aims to celebrate the creativity of the people of West Africa and use African cinema to promote knowledge and understanding of African arts, literature and culture. Winning films will be showcased in March.

CAMIFF was established to help create a vibrant film culture throughout the region. The event showcases films aimed at educating the local community, inspiring filmmakers and nurturing the growth of the Cameroon and wider African film industries.

Watch out for the shortlist between 24-30 April.
