musingIf at the close of 22 October 2010, Cameroon is brought into focus, it would certainly not be a huge surprise.  This is because the country via its films and some fine actors has been recognized. The recognition, for now has come by way of nominations into some categories of one of the leading film festivals that project African productions in Europe - African Film Festival and Academic Award (ZAFAA). ZAFAA is a Nigerian initiative run from London.

This year, Cameroon has been nominated in the following categories:

Best short film - 30th Day by Musing Derick.

Best up-coming actress - Nzegge Melanie in A Woman's World produced by Itambi Delphine and directed by Kamwa Anthony

Best supporting actor - Kotti Aloysius in Necessary Crime produced and directed by Njamsi Roland.

Best up-coming actor - Nkwah Kingsley in The Porter produced and directed by Musing Derick.

While Cameroon awaits positive results from ZAFAA 2010, congratulatory messages have been flowing in from members of the country's film family. Via a yahoo forum, fellow filmmakers have been wishing their peer success and envisaging celebrations when the time comes.

30th Day, nominated for the best short film category was projected recently at the Yaounde African Film Festival dubbed Ecrans Noirs. Its producer and director Musing Derick whose film The Porter is sending in a candidate in the best up-coming actor category is also the a author of Cluster, a 2008 selling movie  and Nexus, a soon-to-be released 52-episode serial. Meanwhile Itambi Delphine,s A Woman's World was recently screened on Cameroon's national television; CRTV.
