The Governing Board and Grand Jury of the Golden Movie Awards Africa would like to inform the general public that due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the scheme, this year’s edition of the event, which was scheduled for 5th December, 2020 has been rescheduled for 19th December, 2020.
This has become necessary based on the upcoming general elections, which the scheme did not anticipate to be as intensive and sensitive as we are currently witnessing.
Further, the scheme intends to celebrate all nominees and honorees in an extra special way this year for defying all the challenges posed by COVID-19 to put Africa on the world map through film. In view of this, the scheme is satisfied that it will be more expedient to do so in an atmosphere that is devoid of the anxiety and agitation that comes with elections.
This decision notwithstanding, all GMAA PASSPORTS bearing the old date still hold valid and will be accepted and the guests granted entry to the venue on the 19th of December. The scheme would also like to inform all our sponsors, donors and media partners that all plans remain unchanged.
Please visit our website, www.goldenmovieawards.com and social media platforms @goldenmovieawards for more information on venue and time.
The GMAA remains Africa’s biggest awards scheme, helping to change the negative narrative of Africa through film.
