The Sparrow Entertainment Festival lived up to the hype as cinema enthusiasts were treated to two days of glamour, excitement, and fabulous productions.
The two-day festival was well attended and star-studded as Sparrow Productions in the midst of other memorable experiences showed two of their exciting upcoming productions for the year; Shampaign and Rebecca.
The two movie theaters at the Silverbird Cinema where the two productions were shown, were filled to capacity with audience cheering loudly during the showing.
Politician Samia Nkrumah who was at the festival in an interview with Citi News lauded Shirley Frimpong Manso for the two exciting productions.
According to her, “Rebecca was fun and was intense at the same time, and the actors were great, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it is easy to do a movie with just two people, so Shirley Frimpong-Manso did a great job”.
Some of the celebrities in attendance included; Ama Abebrese, Nana Akua Addo, Yvonne Okoro, Zynnell Zuh, Akorfa Edjeani–Asiedu, Joseyln Dumas, Adjetey Annang, Ofie Kudjo, among others.
Yvonne Okoro in an interview with Citi News indicated that Rebecca has been her most challenging movie.
“It is a priceless experience for me, though this is not first time shooting in Ghana, Shooting in Ghana is great, it is quite relaxing, it feels at home, you guys rock,” Joseph Benjamin indicated.
The CEO of Sparrow Productions, Shirley Frimpong-Manso indicated that she is a “fun of great dialogue, hence I did well to write something that will excite and keep Ghanaians engaged during the movie”.
She further intimated that shooting Rebecca was the most challenging movie she has done. She said the location made it particularly difficult.
“I am satisfied with the outcome of this festival, especially with the reception that movies have had with the audience”, Shirley Frimpong-Manso added.
The two movies; Rebecca and Shampaign, are expected to hit the cinemas soon.
The Sparrow Entertainment Festival, 2016, which is the maiden edition, promises to be an event worth looking forward to each year.
