Director of Northern movie ‘Pieli,’ OBL, has submitted the movie to the 14-member Committee formed to oversee the submission and selection of a Ghanaian film for Oscars 2018.
“After all the publications by your outfit and others, calling for ‘Pieli’ to be considered to represent Ghana at the Oscars 2018, I forgot the deadline for submission (laughed). However, I gave the DVDs to my brother who was going to China to submit for me.
“He finally called to inform me that he went to NAFTI and submitted it and later had confirmation from the secretary he sent to that it has reached the committee” OBL told Presspeep.com
