I would like to appreciate and thank the Cinema Society of Zimbabwe for the support in my journey to become a filmmaker. Your engaging programs from acting, digital marketing, editing, screen writing, acting and photography has positioned me better improving the quality of my productions, enlarging my network to work with different filmmakers across Zimbabwe. These are the benefits I have come to enjoy through working with Cinema Society of Zimbabwe in under one year.

I have learned that a degree is not enough to be a director for a film production, one has to know and be in charge visualizing the project. One has to know pre-production, production and post-production. Above all a director has to be responsible to the cast, crew and everyone concerned with the project. I urge aspiring filmmakers to depend on CSZ to learn and grow. I have learned a great deal during the production of Chipo the Gift Season 2 in Chiweshe where l interned helping the crew.

Cinema Society of Zimbabwe helped me to be more creative and think outside the box to create interesting content. My association with Cinema Society has started paying dividends as I have more offers across the industry and my networks keeps growing.

I would safely say joining Cinema Society of Zimbabwe was the best decision of my life and I am proud to be a member of the society calling other aspiring filmmakers to join so we work together to build a large community.

Thank you CSZ
