Veronica Mukuni, the senior chief Mukuni of Kazungula District’s wife, has called on the creative sector to include women, young people, and people with disabilities in the film business.
According to Ms. MUKUNI, women and people with disabilities are marginalized in many areas of life, not only the film business.
She was speaking at the KELECHI EKE-founded and Vilole Images Production-hosted African Women Arts and Cinema Festival Awards Night.
The African Women Arts and Cinema Festival, according to Livingstone Mayor CONSTANCE MULEABAI, aims to highlight female filmmakers by displaying the works of art and stories of African women.
According to her, the event also aims to inspire budding female artists with the goal of boosting the proportion of female African artists and filmmakers.
The moment has arrived, according to MUSOLA KASEKETI, production director of Vilole Pictures, for women to be allowed to hold important positions in the film business, including director.
The Men Supporting Women award went to BRIAN BWEMBYA, often known as Bflow; the Humanitarian award went to BEATRICE MOYO; and the Excellence in Media Award went to BRIDGET MALUMBA.
