The organisers of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) have revealed the date for the eighth edition of the event, which is set to take place between May 7-14 this year.
The eight-day series of events will commence on May 7 and will include an opening night, a runway show, MultiChoice Talent Factory day, content market day, pan-African food festival and cultural day, digital content creator’s day and a nominee gala, ending with an awards night ceremony on May 14.
Busola Tejumola, executive head, content and West Africa channels at MultiChoice Nigeria, said: “We are focused on shining the light on the many aspects that make the African film and television industry truly magical and beaming that magic to millions of Africans who watch the awards every year.
“These curated events will feature a celebration of fashion, technology, food and African culture. There will also be panel discussions and film screenings from our MultiChoice Talent Factory, industry sessions, and competitions for digital content creators and budding fashion designers.”
The nominees for the eighth edition of the AMVCAs will be unveiled on March 9 in a special broadcast on all of MultiChoice’s Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv from 21:00 WAT. The event will be hosted by Nollywood actors Adesua Etomi-Wellington and Daniel Etim-Effiong.
Since the introduction of the AMVCAs in 2013, it has fostered the development of the African film and television industry.
