Entries are being accepted for the 3rd annual Golden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA) to be held in the last week of June in Accra, Ghana. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2017. The annual GMAA is an initiative by NMJ Ghana and its Ghanaian and international partners to reward excellence in filmmaking on the Africa continent and among Africans in the diaspora.
GMAA gives the opportunity to African filmmakers from around the world to receive praise, recognition and be awarded for their efforts at telling the African stories to both Africans and the rest of the world during the period under review.
The scheme is accepting films of all genres and lengths with any official language or subtitled in any official language. All films presented shall be watched and shortlists made based on the awards’ criteria for the consideration of the jury.
Award winning films in the various categories of the scheme will be chosen based on merit and the content of the films by a jury made up of experienced filmmakers and film industry practitioners of different nationalities. Only films made between 1st January 2016 and 31st January 2017 should be submitted for consideration in the 2017 edition of awards.
To make fair and just decisions in its choice for the various winners at the GMAA, the jury will consider relevant African stories, relevant methods of storytelling, technical excellence and other important factors of filmmaking.
Submissions should be made via the GMAA website: www.goldenmovieawards.com or delivered by courier to or by dropping copies of the film in MP4 format at the NMJ Ghana offices at Number 35 Akoofio Street, Adenta, Accra, Ghana.
