At the premiere of the Mindset Series, Accelerate Head, Colette Otusheso said, “Each of the top 5 winners put in their best for these films, from working on set with the crew through to post-production. It was great to see them work together, even with the filmmakers that didn’t get a chance to be in the top 5. We are indeed proud of the hard work of these young filmmakers and are even more proud to showcase another set of our Accelerate Filmmaker Project short films at the prestigious African International Film Festival for the third year in a row.”

The short films from the 2019 Accelerate Filmmaker Project will be available to the public on the Accelerate TV YouTube channel from December 1, 2019, to January 2020.
