– Bsiff introduces special category for Ghanaian filmmakers. As of 2020, the Black Star International film festival is including a category reserved for Ghanaian filmmakers and films made about Ghana. This category will be on the same level as all other categories and also be under competition. The festival is responding to the high numbers of quality submissions from Ghanaian filmmakers over the years and the sharp spike at BSIFF19- and the follow up advocacy from Ghanaian filmmakers to include a category targeted solely to locals.
The festival acknowledges the growth it has witnessed within the sector, Judging from the quality of submissions and is therefore making room to accommodate the growth even as we continue to work to help nurture filmmakers. It is the hope that this big step will help propel and nurture even more the Ghanaian filmmaker to produce work that is competitive on the world stage.
