MTF West Africa Academy Class Of 2018’s Film Screening Of “Life Of Bim” And “DreamChaser” At The Lagos Cinema!

Published

on

MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) is excited to announce the highly-anticipated screening of the films Life of Bim and DreamChaser by the MTF West Africa Academy’s Class of 2018! The two films are a culmination of the students’ one-of-a-kind training from the inaugural MTF Academy programme and will be screened at the Lagos Cinema today.

As the first touchpoint of MultiChoice Africa’s ground-breaking corporate shared value (CSV) initiative, the MTF Academy’s 12-month training programme is specifically designed to train the next generation of African film and TV creatives in partnership with stakeholders across the continent.

Under the guidance of the esteemed Academy Directors within the academy’s East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa academy hubs, the academy students were required to produce a 60-minute film in groups as part of their curriculum, resulting in the films Life of Bim and DreamChaser which represent the West Africa hub.

Life of Bim follows the story of 32-year old Bim, whose life begins to swiftly unravel after the unresolved actions of his past resurface. The results are dire: He loses his chance at becoming a football star, his job and his close relationships. Faced with the possibility of further calamity and pressure from his parents, BIM must now face his past and set his life back on course.

It won’t be easy, and as BIM rebuilds, he has to do the same for his sibling, who faces the same risk of a life unravelling.

In DreamChaser, the bright lights and a chance of fame and fortune in music prompt a young woman to pack her bags and set off for Lagos, despite her father’s wishes against it.
She quickly discovers that pursuing her dream would require even more from her, and at a cost.

For West Africa hub Academy Director Femi Odugbemi, the film screening is a hallmark moment for the students and their re-entry into the industry as creatives equipped with professional and technical know-how.

“These two films are a culmination of all that the Class of 2018 have learnt during their tenure at the MTF Academy, and the results are outstanding. They have achieved the essence of what the Academy has set out to do, which is to train the next generation of filmmakers who are willing to take on big themes and unearth untold African stories, and be deliberate about the art that they create,” says Odugbemi.

Students and attendees alike can expect the full red-carpet treatment at screening, with a guest list that includes various industry producers and creatives, film festival organisers, parents and relatives of students, as well as key representatives from MultiChoice Nigeria and its MTF partners and film aficionados.

As part of MultiChoice Africa’s long-term commitment to igniting Africa’s creative industries, both films will premiere on Africa Magic Showcase. Life of Bim will premiere on the channel on Saturday, 21 September at 6pm, and DreamChaser will premiere on Saturday, 28 September at 6pm. Both films will be also available on the DStv Now app.
