A Zimbabwean film produced by acclaimed director Lawrence ‘Larry’ Mutasa is in the running for two awards after being nominated for the Zulu African Film Academy Awards (ZAFAA 2012) set for December in London this year.
The movie Choice (2010) about a young affluent Zimbabwean woman, named Choice, who tries to balance the love of her husband and that of her secret lover has been nominated for “Best Film Editor” and Best Cinematography.
Nollywood Entertainment Ltd UK who run the awards said it was “after intense scrutiny and profound deliberation by the selection committee” that the work by Larry Mutasa (Film Editor) and Mutsa Mawoko (Cinematography) was picked.
Speaking to Nehanda Radio, Bright Mawoko the films Executive Producer said:
“This means that Choice will have the opportunity to expose and promote Zimbabwe as a nation of intelligent people who are able to compete in the Global Film industry as well as promote the country’s tourism.”
Mawoko said a lot of film makers from Africa were competing for the awards with nominations from Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria and other countries. The awards will be televised in the UK and across the African continent.
Choice film editor Larry Mutasa, has previously worked as second Film Editor on films such as Neria, More Time, Everyone’s Child (all three with John and Louise Riber), I am the Future and The Big Time with the late Olly Maruma.
