Story by Colette Musanyera

A Zimbabwean film titled ‘Mirage’ is set to feature at the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival which will be held in Canada from the 17th to the 24th of September.

Produced by multi-award-winning filmmaker, Joe Njagu and directed by Malaika Mushandu, ‘Mirage’ which tells a thrilling story of three women’s plot to escape from a maximum prison, has been given an opening slot at the Seventh Edition of the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival (TINFF).

“Mirage is a film written by Virginia Jekanyika, directed by Malaika Mushandu and produced by Joe Njagu. We feel honoured after Mirage has been selected to be the opening act at the forthcoming Toronto International Film Festival. It’s huge for a local film to be selected at such a platform and we are proud as a team, and we are looking forward to attending the festival.

“It’s an opportunity for our local film to be showcased at an international platform because that’s where other broadcasters and film consumers meet, so it’s a chance for us to market our creativity in storytelling,” said the Producer.

The film, which was also been nominated in three categories at the festival namely, ‘Best Feature Film’, ‘Best Female Filmmaker’ and ‘Best Picture Film’, has also been previously nominated for several international awards.

‘Mirage,’ is Zimbabwe’s first film to be recognised at the prestigious platform and features a star-studded cast that includes Prudence Katomeni Mbofana, Chipo Bizure, Charmaine Mujeri and Eunice Tava.
