ABOUT AMAA
The Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) is an offshoot of the Africa Film Academy. The Academy, founded on the best film tradition, is geared towards research, training and propagating filmmaking in Africa.

Established in 2005, AMAA aims to facilitate the development and relevance of African film & cinema by providing a rewards & recognition platform for film makers on the continent. African film makers work hard with very little and have, not through serendipity but through sheer audacity, managed to build the 3rd largest film industry in the world.

Today, African films serve as a link for Africans in the Diaspora with Africans at home. These films have the potential to serve as a shared collective experience, a reminder that Africa is a vibrant continent filled with colour, energy and possibility.
