Intwasa Arts Festival Ko Bulawayo which started on 21 September and brought the curtain down on 25 September, is going to air three extra movies which were supposed to be on the festival’s programme.
The three short films, The Hen That Came to Roost, #Umjolo and Conversations with Writers, failed to upload during the festival which was celebrating 17 years of existence.
“Three films failed to upload during the Intwasa Festival. We have rescheduled them to be displayed this week on different dates.
“Conversations with Writers, which features Mihla Sitsha, will be aired on Wednesday 29 September at 6pm.
“The short film by Elliot Moyo “The Hen That Came to Roost” is now airing on Thursday at 6pm. Umjolo is now airing on Friday at 6pm.
“All films are supported by the Culture Fund of Zimbabwe Trust and the European Union,” said festival director Raisedon Baya in a statement.
Meanwhile, on the sidelines of Intwasa during the Women, Wine and Words gig, Baya said he was grateful for the support that Intwasa was given especially by benevolent sponsors and fans.
“Covid-19 is still around and we never thought we would attract sponsors and people to our festivities. The economy including the arts sector is slowly opening and people are afraid to come out.
“We are happy with the reasonable crowd that graced our events in line with Covid-19 protocols. Intwasa was a test paper and it became an experience that will open doors for many upcoming events during this hard era,” said Baya.
