Award Series: Forgotten Kingdom

Pulling the resources together to direct and produce a feature film is challenging under any circumstances. But Forgotten Kingdom director Andrew Mudge also the challenge of making a film in undeveloped parts of Africa. “Just getting from point A to point B most days was a challenge,” Mudge said. But through private equity, a private grant from the nation of Lesotho and hard work by a dedicated crew, the work got done.

And ever since, the film has been rewarded with a string of awards in the film festival circuit. That includes the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at this year’s Sarasota Film Festival.

“It is such a bonus to come to an artistic community and hit it out of the park,” said producer T.R. Boyce.

Please listen to our interview with Mudge, recorded in partnership with WSRQ.
