2nd international film acting training goes online

NGOMA—This year’s training is not funded

The second international film acting, spearheaded by actor Kelvin Ngoma with support from other players, will be held next month.

Ngoma, who starred in Chiwetel Ejiofor’s film – The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, confirmed the development Tuesday.

“This time, we have eight different faciliators who are big film producers and directors from different countries including Kenya, United Kingdom, United States of America and Ghana,” Ngoma said.


The training will take place from October 5 to 10 2020.

“Due to Covid-19 pandemic, we will conduct the training online since public gatherings are not allowed. Being online, this year’s training is not limited and we encourage alot of people to register,” he said.

He said the training will be bigger and better this year, continuing from where they left off last year.


“Once again, the training is open to all districts of Malawi as well as neigbouring countries,” he said.

He said the training was important in bringing film producers, directors and actors together to share their experiences.

“We can grow and change the face of our industry if we frequently have these trainings. Things are changing and we need to learn new things always, otherwise we have potential,” he said.

Ngoma said they opted to bring in faciliators from different countries around the world “because we want the participants, by the end of the training, to be professionals and be equipped with skills from various film industries to be able to know what the international film market is looking for”.

Last year, the training received funding from among others, US Embassy.

“ This year’s training is not funded, being online,” Ngoma said.

He also revealed that Maxwell Simba from Kenya, the main actor in The Boy who Harnessed the Wind and Micheal Matteo, an established filmmaker from USA, Chawezi Munthali, a renowned filmmaker from USA and born in Malawi, will be part of the training.

“We also have Samson Kambalu, Oxford University arts Professor and also actor, we have Teddy Cherim, a renowned filmmaker from Netherlands, Jakob Lewis Barnes, a renowned British film maker, Eddie Adjei, renowned Ghananian filmmaker and Gift Sukez Sukali from Malawi,” Ngoma said .
