Amaa 2016: Jury Statment & Awards
presented By Shaibu Husseini, President Of The Jury 2016: Saturday June 11, 2016. Obi Wali International Conference Centre, Port Harcourt, Rivers State

I wish to, on behalf of the Board of the African Film Academy and the Board of jurors of the AMAA, offer you a warm welcome to what we hope will be an exciting and a memorable 2016 AMAA for you.

Every year, in the last twelve years, hundreds of films from across the continent and its Diaspora arrive at the AMAA offices. This year, we received close to 485 movie entries from over 60 countries, mostly within Africa and also from around the world out of which we only considered about 65 in different genres for nomination in about 26 categories. We commend the work done by the Academy's College of Screeners and at the other levels of pre-selection. We salute their professionalism and thoroughness and note that the selection of films and nominations truly reflects the Pan-African vision for the future of the African film and media industry that AMAA promotes. Indeed, we are encouraged by the ever increasing number of entries being received from a larger geographic sphere and we look forward to the continuation of this trend.

Generally, we as AMAA jurors consider our task to be one of identifying and rewarding the best films in Africa and its Diasporas. Our aim from inception has always been to reward and encourage African originality and to seek out and bring to wider attention the continent's unique and distinctive filmmaking talents. These has been our guiding principles and it is the ambition that informed our deliberations this year.

At this juncture, i like to report that we have had a wonderful time as a jury. We saw films that were ambitious and ingenious and films that were completed with scope and verve. We were also entertained by films made at the guerilla end of our industry. Tonite we celebrate these films and very shortly we shall commend to you the most outstanding films of AMAA 2016.

However, this year, we noticed with great pleasure a growing diversity of genres amongst the films we saw. We also observed a visible development in exploring cinematographic styles especially in the field of storytelling/narration and art direction. We note also a strong presence of women in front of and behind the camera. A couple of the films we have in nomination were either made by women or produced by women. This sure-footed emergence of women filmmakers on the African continent is very promising, encouraging and refreshing for audiences and female professionals in the industry. However, we observed a decline in movies for children and about children. We have over the years handed out awards to child actors but we decided as a jury not to consider that category this year because of inadequate entries. Although we are not oblivious of the present lull in production activities in the film industries on the African continent and in the Diaspora, we urge our filmmakers to seek out and produce those stunning range of films that celebrates our young ones and stories that tell us that the cinema is alive and well in our continent.

Finnaly, we wish to thank all individuals and institutions who have contributed to the success of the AMAA's that is clearly a truly Pan-African event and a global brand. We also thank all those who send and suggest films to the academy and all those who have been charging us with the historic responsibility of seeking out those stunning range of films. We all look forward to the day when governments all over Africa and the AU can partner AMAA, which annually showcases and recognizes the diverse talents of African Filmmakers, to provide a boost and motivation that will collectively fashion a way out that will return the industries on the path of rebound.

Once again, we thank AMAA for this opportunity to serve and may I on behalf of the jury hand out the results for this edition of the award to the founder of AMAA, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, MON.

Have a wonderful evening

Thank You.
