The 2018 edition of the annual Black Star International Film Festival (BSIFF) has officially open in Accra.
The event ushered in a week of activities with an opening ceremony at the Silverbird Cinema, Accra mall.
Second Lady, Mrs. Samira Bawumia graced the event. Also, as well as filmmakers and supporters from the continent and beyond.
Mrs. Bawumia pledged her continued support for the festival and encouraged filmmakers to continue telling stories from Ghana to catapult the nation to “where it is supposed to be”.
This year’s opening film is British crime-drama “Yardie”, a film based on a novel of the same name written by Victor Headley a Jamaican-born British author.
The festival will continue until the Friday 18th of August 2018, with events ranging from daily film screenings, to workshops and panel discussions.
BSIFF is a nonprofit organisation creating global connections through film and helping to bridge the gap between African cinema and the world.
