Amaa 2017 Jury Statement
With our list of Winners

Good evening Your Excellencies, distinguished filmakers and guests. My name is Berni Goldblat, filmmaker, and producer from Burkina faso/Switzerland.
Before I present the jury statement, may I introduce the members of the jury of the 2017 edition of the AMAA's
June Givanni, Guyanese born Pan-African film curator and Archivist based in the UK
Keith Shiri, Zimbabwean born-London based international film curator
Hyginus Ekwuazi, Professor of Broadcasting and Film, University of Ibadan, Founding Consulting Director National Film Institute and Former Managing Director of the Nigerian Film Corporation.
Attorney Asantewa Olatunji, Programming Director Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles
Shaibu Husseini, film journalist and critic at Lagos based The Guardian newspaper
Ayuko Babu, Executive Director of Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles and Commissioner, California Film Commission.
Ambassador Filippe Sawadogo, Former Secretary General of FESPACO and former Minister of Culture of Burkina Faso.
And we have three additional jury members who are unavoidably absent
Dorothee Wenner, filmmaker and curator at the Berlin International Film Festival
John Akomfrah, O.B.E, London based Ghanaian filmmaker
Charles Burnett, Veteran Award winning Filmmaker based in the United States
And then Journalist, Critic and Honourable Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Lagos State Steve Ayorinde, who is on sabbatical



The Jury for the 2017 AMAA is thrilled to share in the joy of today`s occasion. We are also delighted to be a part of this great brand that celebrates the cinema of Africa and the African Diaspora. We consider the move to host the 2017 edition of AMAA in Lagos, one of the iconic international cities of the world, a significant development. Apart from being the entertainment hub in Africa, Lagos is central to black culture and heritage the world over. We thank the government and people of Lagos state for accepting to host what has become established as the singular most important continental film award event that rewards and encourages African creativity and originality.
As Jurors, it is a privilege to have been entrusted with the task of determining the films and filmmakers that best deserve the AMAA awards. With more than 800 submissions from all around the world, we are witnessing an increasingly accomplished global platform.
But we must particularly commend the growing achievements in quality documentary filmmaking on the continent. This development is reflected in the quality and quantity of entries we have received this year. I must say that the Jury was very impressed by the strength of the documentary category. I think it is essential that the perspective of African filmmakers on the realities of the continent is recognized and valued. Therefore, we have decided to mark this promising development of quality and quantity in the documentary category, with an additional award.
This year, the THE SPECIAL JUY PRIZE, will be given to an outstanding documentary film. For the courage of the director and for the capacity of revealing one of the root problems of his country Mali, we give the SPECIAL JURY PRIZE TO the film ‘The Legacy of the Hills' [Les Héritiers de la colline] by Ousmane Samassekou.
PLEASE CAN THE DIRECTOR STEP UP TO RECEIVE THE AWARD?
As African cinema grows and takes its rightful place among the cinemas of the world, it is our hope that the African Movie Academy Awards, will continue to be the flagship platform through which the whole continent and the Diaspora expresses appreciation and support to the art of filmmaking.
I now present the envelopes containing the winners to this great woman The President of the AMAA Peace Anyiam Osigwe, MFR
Enjoy the rest of the evening
