3rd Annual GIAMA Nominees List - Bellanaija - August2014

The GIAMA organization has officially released the nominations for the 2014 GIAMA. According to the GIAMA Jury, this year’s production in African Cinema was very competitive as filmmakers depicted inner complications of the human mind in the execution of the various movies submitted for review.

A vast blend of complex characters in complicated situations was created to entertain viewers with mind-blowing storylines and top-of-the-art African visuals. Our Best Motion Picture, Drama, and other nominated film categories took the viewers into a journey that questions and displays integrating cultural values of both modern and epic traditions. While some made us cry, others made us laugh, with others embodying all the human emotions a great film should inflict on it’s viewers. Story lines depicting struggles for greatness, survival, forgiveness, redemption and self-revelation were major themes showcased this year. All the nominated films encompass the qualities of excellence GIAMA Association endeavors to present in showing the growth and advancement of the African film industry in 2014.

Although the African Diaspora film industry is still in its infant stage, it continues to show an unrelenting spirit for growth and progress.

We appreciate our GIAMA Awards nomination committee for their efforts and congratulate all the nominees.
