Following the positive response the movie B`ella has received internationally, its director, Tawonga Nkhonjera has decided to form Nyasa Films International Academy.

According to Nkhonjera, the academy is aimed at supporting and encouraging filmmakers in Malawi.

“There is no film school in Malawi and this will bring together filmmakers from around the world and young Malawian men and women for regular film trainings and create local films production,” explained Nkhonjera.

“Malawians love movies and this can be noted from video shows that are all over the country. Nowadays it has become very popular to translate international movies into Chichewa and these movies are greatly welcomed by most Malawians so I think what we need is to create local movies,” observed Nkhonjera.

Nkhonjera said he was aware that a majority of the Malawian population could not understand English, hence the need to be producing more films in local languages.

“We want to make local movies in our own language because most Malawians are unable to understand English hence resorting to the Chichewa translated movies.”

B`ella has been invited to a number of international film festivals.
