Nigerian Short Film ‘Rehearsal’ wins new Award in Brazil

Michael Omonua’s ‘Rehearsal’ has won a new international award at the 17th Panorama Internacional Coisa de Cinema in Salvador, Brazil.

The short feature film won the Best International Short film category.

This comes after its latest win in November, of the 12,000 Swiss Franc grand prize at the Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur in Switzerland.

The ‘Juju Stories’ filmmaker confirmed the short film’s latest feat via an Instagram post.

He shared; “Very honoured that Rehearsal won Best International Short Film last night at @panoramacoisadecinema We’re grateful to the festival + jury.

Starring Ruby Akubueze, Brutus Richard, Chimezie Imo and Amanda Oruh, the 15-minute short film follows actors rehearsing for a play about a church group rehearsing miracles.

The actors take on the roles of a church group rehearsing a performative piece but soon, it becomes clear that the church in the play isn’t what it seems.


‘Rehearsal’ is set to screen in Nigeria at the first edition of the Surreal16 film festival slated for December 10-11, 2021.
