After years of success In front of the Camera as a music Celebrity , the Doctor of Soul Music Chrislan Treasure tell us what was the aim Behind organizing the First African Film Festival In Scandinavia “The Afrowood Film Festival 29-30 November 2013” .
Sitting with one of the most inspiring Black Film lovers, with the aim of bringing all Afro Film Industries together for a faster growth, the gem of the Film Festival idea was born… Inspiration on our part by visits over a lifetime to Afro acts to fun festivals (Film & Music), arts fairs, theater production, cinema screening and workshops, we thought Afrowood Film Festival could do the same. The wealth of talent in the area is too huge to be ignored and the heritage of Afro Film-making is Strong.
So the vision is finally upon us and I would like to extend a huge warm welcome to visitors, to the very first annual Afrowood Film Festival. I hope you enjoy the two days of Events and are welcome by our open-hearted city of Copenhagen, our Folks and Fantastic team of “Festival Makers”.
There is something for all ages and tastes, but the real gems of this Festival are the Films in our Competition from renounce Afro film makers starting from the Nollywood Film Industry, the Black Hollywood Industry, Ghallywood, Bollywood, Collywood and all individual Black Filmmakers.
In the run up to the event, we will have workshops on the different aspect of movie making (both the technical and Artistic part) this will be carried on by world known Icons and award winners of the Film Industry. It is also good to know that a local restaurant will be holding special sustainable Food & Dinners at the end of each daily sessions, with VIP Guests including Iconic Movie and Music Stars.
For those seeking the glitz & glamour of the event, I hope you will join us at our showcase room and feel that idea forming in your head, don’t hesitate, grab a pen, write it down and see your visions come to life too. I will use This opportunity to thank my partner Stephen King CEO of Afrowood Media for making this Dream a reality , Hope to see you at the Festival.. this is just the Beginning.
The AFF wants to diversify the film offering in Scandinavia, thereby helping independent Black Filmmakers conquer new audiences and giving the public access to a wider variety of quality works from both Denmark and Foreign Filmmakers
