CICLOPE AFRICA – FIRST AFRICAN FILM CRAFT AWARD
17th April, 2019 – Johannesburg
CICLOPE Africa is the first African award show fully dedicated to craft in moving image.
Unlike other events in the region, CICLOPE Africa focuses on the art of execution, rather than the ideas. We truly believe a good execution is as important as the idea, and extremely determinant for the consumer’s experience.
CICLOPE Africa recognizes and awards the work of African professionals in different categories such as Direction, Animation, Visual Effects, Cinematography and Original Music, among others.
After an online judging session, the 3 best ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists and will be included in the CICLOPE Africa’s Awards Ceremony (a collection of the best works of the year in the region) that will take place in Johannesburg, on Wednesday 17th April.
The day before, the Executive Jury will gather to watch the finalist entries, decide on the one best work in each category and choose one Grand Prix for the best work of the year in the competition. The entries selected by the Executive Jury as the best in their categories and the Grand Prix will automatically become finalists at CICLOPE Festival (to be held in Berlin) on the corresponding category.
