This bi-annual event honours and recognizes the work and contributions made by theatre and film practitioners to the Performing Arts. Today we have an opportunity to recognise and celebrate those who help us to tell our stories.
There has been a phenomenal growth in the quality of entries over the years making it the more worth a while to host the awards in recognition of the efforts applied into the final products.
Namibian theatre and film have made it possible for our actors and directors to make a unified transition between the two genres. This is an encouraging development for this robust sector; as these practitioners increasingly get job and skills development opportunities growing it into an economically viable industry.
