After screening around the world, drawing attention while shining light on controversy and receiving acknowledgement from world leaders, Stephanie Linus’ recent production DRY has been selected to screen at the largest and most prestigious black film festival in America – the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF).

Also called the quintessential Black festival, PAFF is the largest event during Black History Month, celebrated in the U.S. every February and is scheduled to take place from February 4 –15 in Los Angeles.

Sidney Poitier, Phylicia Rashad and Taraji P. Henson and a host of other extraordinary industry professionals both in front and behind camera are amongst those who have been honoured by this prestigious festival. ‘DRY’ will be screened on Sunday, February 7, Saturday, February 13 and Monday, February 15.

“I am so glad that DRY has been selected to screen at the Pan African Film Festival. One of the dreams I had while making this movie is that it would be seen on several platforms across the world and that dream is coming to life,” Stephanie Linus, Director of DRY, said.

Produced, directed, and starring Nollywood’s A-List actress, Stephanie Linus, the film is an inspired true story that depicts the life of two young girls living as child brides in West Africa. The movie focuses on child marriage and Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), journeying into the heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many films dare to explore.

The film stars Darwin Shaw as Dr. Alex, the legendary Liz Benson Ameye as the Matron, Bill McNamara as Dr. Brown, and introduces Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge as Halima the teenager who had to endure a life not designed for a child.
