Maumela confirmed that she had been working on a vision to create a film school for aspiring youths who dream to work in the local film industry.
Together with her team, Maumela created the African Academy of Cinematic Arts which focuses on teaching and training the next generation of filmmakers.
Fast forward to 2019 and it has come to attention that students who were a part of this school are now set to graduate in April.
The institutions 2017/2018 class will be celebrating the completion of their hard work on the 5th of April.
The first graduation will be taking place at Nu-Metro VIP cinema in Hyde Park, Johannesburg on the 05th of April 2019.
The graduating students will also be screening their very own films they made to their parents, lecturers, friends, government officials, celebrities, film and television heavyweights.
“I love acting and filmmaking. As an actress on a popular soapie Muvhango, I would always get asked by youngsters how I got into acting. Even though I loved sharing my story, I just always thought it was not enough. I wanted to contribute more than just my story. A film school was a natural choice. Now I share skills and techniques I have learned throughout the years in a formal setting. It is super amazing," said Maumela Mahuwa.
We're glad to see that Maumela is assisting up and coming creatives in opening up the industry in her own way.
