Malawi’s latest film, B’ella has been selected for screening at Karlov Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic.
Taonga Tadja Nkhonjera, who co-directed the film alongside Czech national Thereza Mirovicova, expressed joy over the entry of the film in the festival saying it is not only a personal joy, but it shows that Malawian film industry is being recognised across the world.
“Hopefully we will have a chance to attend workshops that are aimed at building networks with different stakeholders in the industry ranging from actors, producers to sponsors. I believe after attending the workshops we will never be the same and this will help build the movie industry even stronger,” said Nkhonjera.
The Karlov Vary Film Festival will run from July 4 to 12 but the exact date when B’ella will be screened has not been specified in the festival’s programme.
The Karlov Vary Film Festival is one of the oldest film festivals in Central and East Europe.
The screening of B’ella at the festival will be a premiere in Europe.
