At the launch of the Festival with with MultiChoice has, MultiChoice Zambia Managing Director Ngoza Kasunga-Matakala said:
“In our commitment to the growth of the film industry in Zambia, MultiChoice is working closely with local film makers and is providing them with a platform to showcase their talent. The business has done this purposefully to ensure that local talent is nurtured from the grass roots and from every part of the country. We are therefore excited to hear that Sotambe has this year received over 70 entries from places as far Samfya, Livingstone and Solwezi.”
“The business has over the years been working hard to build the capacity of film makers in various ways. With the leading of SuperSport and Mnet, the business has trained many Zambian camera handlers, sound and light technicians, actors and directors of film to produce quality programming that we are now enjoying on Zambezi Magic channel 160 on DStv and on One Zed channel 8 on GOtv. You may wish to know that for the ongoing Africa cup qualifier games, a team of 20 Zambians that were trained by SuperSport are among those travelling around the continent to ensure that the games are televised.” – she added.
The Sotambe Film & Arts Festival’s mission is to boost the quality of local film and arts and with partners like MultiChoice, have a platform to showcase it to Zambia and beyond borders.
“MultiChoice will continue to show leadership in pay TV in Zambia as your best digital television platform and also as your best partner for the industry growth. It is therefore our hope that at the end of this festival, chance for exposure will be given to talented Zambian actors who may have had no opportunity to be seen or heard before now. We want to assure them that MultiChoice will continue to be an enabling brand that nurtures and helps people to achieve their dreams in film and television.” – Ngoza Kasunga-Matakala
