The team at CM would like to congratulate all the 2018 nominees of The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) ceremony, which will be held on February 18 at Royal Albert Hall.
The Awards ceremony will be presided by Absolutely Fabulous actress and BAFTA award-winner Joanna Lumley, who will replace Stephen Fry after having presented 12 BAFTA ceremonies. Lumley will be the first female to preside The BAFTA Awards after 17 years.
CM would like to especially congratulate BAFTA nominee for “outstanding debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer” I am not a Witch, for whom Creativity Media did their post-production and worked closely with.
Zambian-born Welsh Writer/Director Rungano Nyoni’s groundbreaking first feature film has been incredibly praised by both audiences and critics.
The story unfolds in a far-off Zambian village, where a nine-year-old girl (Margaret Mulubwa) is faced with two choices after being accused of being a witch: to either accept her supernatural reputation and stay in the local village, or to be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten.
Critics have referred to the film as a daring satirical parable of both magic and misogyny. A story that has stunned audiences and jurors, for its urgency on pressing social issues and the female’s role in society.
Rungano Nyoni started her bright and pioneering film career with award-winning shorts such as Mwansa the Great and Listen. Her bold independent vision holds great promise for the British and international film industry.
CM would also like to give a special mention to BAFTA nominee for “Outstanding British Film” God’s Own Country, .
