King Ampaw’s No Time To Die was shot in Ghana in 2006 but the film has still not been commercially released in Ghana though it has shown at several festivals in Europe and America.
Those still yet to see it here will get the chance to do that during the Accra International Film Festival (AIFF) to be held from June 25 to June 3
The cast of the film includes David Dontoh, Kofi Bucknor, Evans Oma Hunter, Fritz Baffour, Kwesi France, Agartha Ofori, Kofi Mends, Addokwei Moffat, Issifu ‘Tico’ Kasimu and Juliet Tetteh-Hoga. It will show at the Silverbird Cinema on June 27.
Films from other countries such as Australia and America will also be shown during the festival period.
Some personalities from Ghana, Nigeria, United States of America and Burkina Faso will receive meritorious awards.
That will happen at a dinner/awards night on the last day of the festival being sponsored by Haier Thermocool. President John Mahama is expected to be the special guest at the dinner/awards event.
“Ghana has been an eye-opener in filmmaking for many other countries across the continent and a first-class film festival has been long overdue here,” said King Ampaw, chairman of the AIFF board.
“ We are working hard to help make African films more visible on the global scene and we are sure AIFF would eventually grow to be the key international Anglophone film festival in sub-Saharan Africa. ”
The AIFF is presented by PZ Imperial Leather and supported by His Majesty’s Freight Services, Viasat1 Tv. Porche Car Company, Silverbird Cinema, SIC company, TV3, AIT and Graphic Communications Group Limited.
