Top Nigerian actor OC Ukeje plays a leading role in the South African film Ayanda. The movie had its world premiere earlier this year at the LA Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Prize in the World Fiction Competition. It will next screen as part of the prestigious BFI Film festival’s official selection in London on October 10, 2015
Then it’ll also get a limited theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles in early November, with a digital release to follow.
Array is the new incarnation of DuVernay’s 5 year-old distribution company, previously known as AFFRM (African American Film Festival Releasing Movement). In its new, expanded capacity, Array will focus on releasing films by filmmakers of color and female filmmakers.
We gathered that the deal was brokered by Ten10Films/Restless Distribution, a Restless Global company, which is selling and distributing Ayanda worldwide
The film was produced by Real Eyes Films and Terry Pheto’s Leading Lady Productions, with the support of the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), Africa Magic and the South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). u.
