Invincible takes best film script award

Invincible, a film documentary by Rwandan artiste Yves Montand Niyomugabo was voted the best film script among the final three that were selected from a pool of 600 films scripts presented to a select jury in June 2013. The top three scripts have already attracted sponsorship to be upgraded into movies.

The movie screenings started at 6:30pm at Serena Hotel and the audience acted as the jury. The three films, two fictions and one documentary, showed a stunning level of quality and took a fresh look at the issue of reconciliation. The other premiered movies included Crossing Lines by Samuel Ishimwe and Akaliza Keza by Philbert Aimé Mbabazi. The latter two films presented an exceptional in depth analysis of the difficulties of individuals trying to overcome barriers linked with the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

The best film Invincible was based on a true story from a Rwandan artiste Jean Samputu whose parents and family members were killed in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi by a friend whom he forgave and has even helped his children financially.
The best script scooped Rwf 1 million.
