Dry Wins At Pan African Film Festival
Stephanie Linus’ critically acclaimed movie Dry has won the Programmers’ Award for Narrative Feature at the recently concluded Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, United States. This comes on the heels of a flurry of local and international awards including the ‘Best Protagonist’ at the Bentonville Film Festival in Arkansas, United States.
Produced, directed, and starring Stephanie Linus, the film is based on a true story and depicts the lives of two young girls as child brides in West Africa. The movie focuses on child marriage and its associated dangers of early childbirth, often leading to Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF).
Dry is also nominated in 9 categories at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2016 (AMVCA) which comes up this March, and has won at the BON Awards and Zafaa Global Awards in categories including Movie with the Best Social Message, Best Cinematography, Best Screenplay, Best Child Actress and Best Producer.
