Liyana Upcoming Festival Screenings

Liyana has screened to great audience and critical acclaim at festivals around the world and directors Aaron and Amanda Kopp have been in attendance at many of the festivals.  2018 continues their festival streak with them or animation artist Shofela Coker attending several screenings.

The Independent Critic named Liyana in their “Best of 2017 Awards” as on ot the top 5 documentaries and top 15 films overall:

“If you ever wonder about the importance of film festivals, Liyana should be Exhibit #1 as to their importance in bringing to the forefront some of the most unique and important cinema. I first watched Liyana at Indy’s Heartland Film Festival. I still haven’t stopped thinking about this innovative and vital documentary about an original African tale created by orphaned children in Swaziland. Executive produced by Thandie Newton, Liyana could have gone wrong in so many ways. Instead, it is one of 2017’s most impressive cinematic achievements. I want to watch Liyana again. Right now.”
– Richard Propes, The Independent Critic
