FILMMAKER, Tunde Kelani, was recently named as the recipient of the prestigious 2012 Africa Reel Award at the Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF), California, USA.

The Africa Reel Award is presented to a filmmaker of African origin whose body of works represents excellence in the art of film, but more importantly a filmmaker who has through such body of works shown a dogged commitment to uplifting the spirit of Africa.

In a congratulatory letter sent to the multiple award winning filmmaker, signed by the Festival Director, Chike C. Nwoffiah, Kelani was recognised for his unrivalled commitment to promoting his cultural heritage in his works.
I am delighted that this year’s award will be given to you in recognition of your many years of commitment to lifting up our people through your films. As is our practice, we have submitted your name to the California State House of Assembly where the Assembly member for our district (Assembly member Paul Fong) will secure a Certificate of Recognition for you from the California State Legislature.
