Last night saw the Screen Nation Film and Television Awards 2020 take place online where AKI OMOSHAYBI was honoured with a Rising Star Award.
Aki has had an incredible year. He made his feature film directorial debut with 'Real' in which he also stars as the leading role of Kyle. The drama follows a new couple as they embark on the struggles and hardships of their lives while at the start of a blossoming relationship. The picture premièred at last year's London Film Festival where it made several lists for Festival must-sees and was very favourably received. It also played at PAFF in LA in February of this year and will soon be getting distribution.
Aki's award last night will also join his win for Best Leading Actor at the British Urban Film Festival for the feature film 'Faces', where the film had its European première last September. It is a multi-narrative film set across four storylines that follows a group as their lives begin to unravel.
