HISTORY OF AMAA
The Africa Movie Academy Awards was founded in 2005 and has been successfully held in every other subsequent year. Mostly held in Nigeria, the Awards Scheme is described as one of the most revered and coveted events of its kind on the African continent.
Evolving from a one day event — televised live — to an annually chronicled African event, the AMA Awards is now an established engagement platform for filmmakers, industry professionals and all creative industry stakeholders.
The primary aim of the AMA Awards is to facilitate the development and the showcasing of the social relevance of African film and cinema. The awards are presented to recognise and honour excellence in professional filmmaking in the African film industry and the African Diaspora.
Over the years, the award presentation has been attended by numerous international media representatives, Hollywood celebrities, Nigerian politicians, other African politicians, journalists, film industry professionals, actors and actresses from across Africa.
