Zambian director and producer, Frank Sibuuku, shares his amazing journey into the film industry.
He is, without a doubt, one of the best in his class, having been associated with top level appearances through Zuba and Mpali productions.
Speaking on the Zambian film industry, sibuuku feels growth had been positive over the past years.
“It has been my dream to see the Zambian film industry grow, I personally have worked tirelessly day and night to develop, create and execute stories that I felt would be the best depiction of the Zambian story,” he said.
He had over the past years worked with some great talents in his productions, garnering awards to his name.
The producer noted the role of Multichoice in his career path, adding that their support had made a difference in his life.
“For me, this dream would have not been possible without the support and constant guidance from the organization.
“They have continued to play a significant role in my personal growth and the growth of the Zambian film industry as a whole. They believed in my dream and pushed me beyond what I thought was my limit,” he said.
The cable network through Zambezi platform has allowed many Zambian filmmakers to have a launchpad from where they can showcase their craft but also to create employment for other filmmakers.
He said that many Zambians were proud to turn on the television and watch their own local productions because of the platform that the organization had given producers.
Sibuuku, however, is saddened by the negative reviews received by the firm on social media.
“It saddens me to see all the negative comments and statements being made about Multichoice online, As consumers of content we are looking at the bigger picture. There has been so much investment made to our industry with initiatives such as the talent factory, through which young Zambians are being accorded the opportunity to get scholarships to study film production,” he said.
