ZimbabweFilmAndTelevisionAwards

They will be held at 7 Arts Theatre, Avondale in Harare.

The awards seek to recognise the talents that have often been ignored in the sector.

Said team leader Rufaro Ruseke:

We came up with this idea last year. The first one is a bit small while we tweak it to get it right. We have selected a panel that’s looking into the films we have selected. We are doing this mostly for the other departments that are have never been celebrated in the other awards like editors, costume designers and cinematographers.

Nominees are being finalised he added and a panel has been put together to have a look at the films selected for this year. Productions from 2000 onwards will be under consideration.

The inaugural event is in collaboration with Zimbabwe International Film Festival which will be running in that same week.
