For SA Actress Nomzamo Mbatha, it’s a great honour to be called to represent what you stand for. Though she’s getting the butterfly feeling in her stomach, you can easily tell she’s very enthusiastic about it.
One of her works, Tell Me Sweet Something will be screened at the meeting, under the theme of; Imagining Africa At The Center.
“When one gets the incredible honour to represent, not just themselves but also the film’s producers, directors and entire cast, the nerves set in. On this film I worked with one of the most selfless producers, Akin Omotoso, who imparted that it was never just about his vision, it was a collective effort of all involved.” said Nomzamo.
Subsequently, Nomzamo is planning to tap into the experience she gained as the ambassador for the recently hosted Joburg Film Festival to help her nail her presentation at the ASA meeting.
“When I took on the role to be the ambassador for Joburg Film Festival, I never imagined I would soon be on this journey. The experience gained from it will come to good use as I prepare to address the African Studies Association’s Annual Meeting – the largest gathering of African scholars and professionals. My focus in my address is not to stand as Nomzamo Mbatha the actress, but I will be speaking and representing all South African actors and film professionals, who I hope to make proud.”
Notably, over the past eight months, the actress had the honour to be the ambassador for the Joburg Film Festival. The opportunity saw her traveling to film festivals around the world and engaging the acting industry in South Africa.
