DLD helps create The Greatest Movie Ever Made

The Greatest Movie Ever Made

The Greatest Movie Ever Made – or as it was fondly referred to on social media, #MMGreatest – was a campaign run by M-Net Movies to “open up the industry” to aspiring local actors. Running a competition via the M-Net website, #MMGreatest encouraged viewers to reenact and record their favourite movie scene and submit it as an audition video.

Out of a diverse pool of talent from across Africa, the filmmakers and channel whittled the list down to seventeen finalists, which was further shaved down to a top six. The latter would go on to star in The Greatest Movie Ever Made produced by M-Net Movies and Spitfire Films, with renowned local directors Peter Heaney, AK, and Akin Omotoso at the helm.

The campaign culminated in a two-fold grand finale. Firstly, two overall prizewinners were announced and will be jetted off to Hollywood for a movie star experience. Secondly, the final product, the film itself, premiered on 4 December across Africa on M-Net Movies Premiere, introducing viewers to the talent Africa is waiting to unleash upon the world.
