#LANDoftheBRAVEfilm headed to FESPACO

By Jeoffrey Mukubi

Tim Huebschle’s #LandOfTheBrave thriller, which is a local film about a tough police officer who is hot on the heels of an ice-cold killer, has been shortlisted for the FESPACO (Pan-African Film & TV Festival of Ouagadougou).

The festival is a biennial event held in the capital of Burkina, Ouagadougou and the 27th edition is scheduled to begin on the 16th to 23rd October this year.

According to the #LandOfTheBrave’s Instagram page, the film was specifically chosen for the Panorama category.

“This section includes films that retrace the moods and developments in contemporary African cinema in tune with their time. Aesthetically, formally and politically, they are strong films that have something to say to the large audience, curious and ready for interaction,” the post read.


Ten films, including five documentaries and five fiction films, will all be competing under this section. Since its premiere, #LandOfTheBrave has been nominated four times and has won two awards at the Silicon Valley African Film Festival for ‘Best Narrative Feature’ and at the Ugandan Film Festival, for ‘Best International Feature Film’.

LandOfTheBrave can be watched on DSTV’s streaming platform, Showmax.
