The 18th edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), which will take place in October, has ambitious plans for a full week of events.

Tope Ajayi, director of media for the award, confirmed the plans by saying that the gala night festivities for the ceremony will take place at the custom Jewel Aeida hall in Lekki, Lagos.

The African Film Academy’s graduation of trainees on October 25, 2022, will mark the start of the 18th edition of the continental awards ceremony, according to the director for media who also unveiled the event’s program.

Following the commencement ceremony on October 27, 2022, a wellness day will be held, and on October 28, 2022, dignitaries and fashion enthusiasts will attend a series of conferences that will include a discussion of the diaspora, a discussion of music and movies, and a fashion display.

On Saturday, October 29, 2022, there will likely be a nominees party, and on Sunday, October 30, 2022, the AMAA gala will take place at Jewel Aeida Hall.

Filmmaker Bolanle Austen Peters, whose movie “Man of God” received more than five nominations, including ones for best director, best actor, and best actress, described the AMAAs as a lucrative platform required to support aspiring African filmmakers in his speech at the ceremony.

“It’s not just about the awards, it’s about people getting recognition for their work. Making films isn’t easy and we need the AMAA to keep up the good work of encouraging burgeoning filmmakers on the continent.”

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, and Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, the commissioner for culture, arts, and tourism, are two dignitaries that are anticipated to attend the event.
