About Kwame 

As writer/director of multiple award winning drama-shorts, his treatment of story, character and representation combines to form a distinctive and resonant narrative voice.  "Finding my voice has been a game-changer - and I'm excited to see how it evolves."

Drawing from 15 years experience as a self-shooting director, editor and producer for international brands including BBC, Tommy Hilfiger & WHO - Kwame brings bags of on-set experience to projects.   I'm a director who writes, a producer who can also direct, an editor who can also grade and a DoP with 20 years experience as a professional photographer.  My work is really varied, including drama, documentary, branded and performance films.

In the world of independent cinema, Kwame has produced, written and directed several short films and one feature.  

Calm’ was selected to several international festivals and nominated for Best International Short Film at the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA's) in 2015. His topical youth drama ‘BAiL’ was awarded the Directors Award at Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) in 2019 as well as Best Foreign Short Film at Realtime International Film Festival (RTF) 2019.  BAiL is also the proud recipient of an African Movie Academy Award (AMMA) for Best Diaspora Short Film 2019.  His first feature film is currently on the festival circuit and was selected to the Pan African Film Festival 2024.

 

In 2019 Kwame wrote and produced his first radio drama 'Chasing Sunrise' and has recently (in 2024) completed his first novel.
