The Witches of Gambaga has just been shown at Warsaw in Poland as part of Afrykamera, the only African Film Festival in Eastern Europe. Zimbawean novelist and filmmaker, Tstsi Dangaremba, recommended the film to the Afrykamera team, and they selected it for this year’s festival from 26th May- 2nd June.
The documentary went down very well with audiences at the festival. It received an audience rating of 4.33 out of 5, was voted best new documentary out of the 13 shown at Afrykamera, and was the overall 3rd favourite documentary. 1st and 2nd place went to two ‘classic ‘documentaries made in 1999 & 2000 respectively. Finally, The Witches came 6th in the audience rating of everything screened at the festival – 11 documentaries and 27 feature films – which is a tremendous accolade.
