The 4th edition of the Riverwood Academy Awards, which aims to celebrate the best of low-budget local film, went down yesterday in a red carpet event at the Kenya national theater.
Riverwood Ensemble focuses on cinema by Africans for Africans, which cuts across the socio-cultural boundaries of the continent, defying all artificial geographical and political barriers capturing the essence of the African tales by moonlight with themes which know no colour, language, or nationality but which by themselves are a reflection in the mind of the individual of his own experiences and environment.
