Afrinolly is again giving African film makers a chance to win $25,000. Last year Afrinolly gave away $100,000 in prizes to short film producers through the Afrinolly’s Short Film competition. Following the success of the first round of competition and with support of Buni TV, the Nigerian mobile app has announced the second round of competition. The competition that still targets to give away prizes at $5,000 for the third placed film, $10,000 for the second placed film and $25,000 for the top short film opened submissions online on September 1st 2013 and will close on November 30th 2013.

This year’s partnership with Buni TV will help promote the competition to East African filmmakers. “Buni TV and Afrinolly share a strong commitment to support new African film talents,” said Buni TV CEO Marie Lora-Mungai. “We would like to encourage filmmakers from across the continent, and especially from Kenya and East Africa, to take advantage of this great opportunity to showcase their work.”
The panel of judges will be composed of South African film and TV producer Steven Markowitz (Pumzi, Viva Riva!), Ghanaian journalist Komla Dumor of the BBC and Cameroon’s Tambay Obenson, editor of film blog Shadow and Act. Since its creation in 2011, Afrinolly has been downloaded by over 3 million users worldwide. Afrinolly remains at the forefront of maximizing technology and mobile options for viewing and distributing Africa-generated entertainment.
