Stephanie Okereke Linus Meets Tina Knowles, Bill Duke & Others As She Bags Recognition Award In LA

A 2016 movie written, produced and directed by Stephanie Linus,’Dry’ is still making great impact around the world three years later.

The movie has been selected to screen for the second time at the highly coveted Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) in Los Angeles, USA this February, and as a prelude to the festival, Mrs. Linus was recognized at the first ever Blacks In Cinema presentation.

The event took place at the Los Angeles City Council Chambers recently. Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson kicked off the Black History Month by honouring the actors and filmmakers who paved the way for people all walks of life to be represented in film.

With the help of some legendary African- American actors and filmmakers, the day was officially proclaimed Blacks In Cinema day in Los Angeles.

Top black Celebrities the actress met during the event include Bill Duke, Tina Knowles,  Fred Williamson and many others.

In 2016, Dry won Best Narrative Feature at the PAFF. It screens again on Feb 9th, Feb 13th and Feb 18 with an interactive session after the opening night.

The movie has made immense positive impact across the world in changing the narrative concerning child marriage and other forms of social injustice.
