Slated for July 19th-21st in California, the 2018 La Jolla International Fashion Festival sees Ghana’s M.anifest’s “Be My Woman” short film in four award categories: Best Fashion, Best Sound Design, Best Cinematography and Best Director.

In October 2017, M.anifest announced via Twitter that  the Makere Thekiso had been selected for consideration at the festival.

Thekiso reportedly did not intend to make the short film until he was onset M.anifest’s video shoot and it dawned on him what an authentic fashion narrative they had on their hands.
