There was only 140 nominees in 27 categories out of over 3000 submissions at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) 2018 in Nigeria. ‘Salute’ was one of the nominees, as best movie Southern Africa. While it didn’t win (the prize went to Shemu Joyah from Malawi for his film ‘the road to sunshine’), it was an amazing opportunity as it was Namibian’s first and only nomination. Thanks to Multi-Choice for inviting OYO’s director Philippe Talavera to attend, thanks to Air Namibia for flying Philippe and actor Adriano Visagie in business class and thanks to the Namibia Film Commission for sponsoring the presence of actor Dawie Engelbrecht. The awards were an opportunity to share and network.
