MuliChoice Namibia said in a statement that Hamunghete worked as the assistant director for A Quiet Intruder and described the experience as incredible. “Being a part of A Quiet Intruder has been such a great honour. It has been a great reward and to have it recognized in this way is the dream,” she said.

It has been a jot to be part of a group of amazing filmmakers and learn from them and she is excited to share what they did with the whole Africa.

Amutenya, who did sound design, location recording and digital imaging on both Strings and A Quiet Intruder said he is very excited to be a part of this nominations. “I am also grateful to the MTF for the opportunity to be exposed to such a huge platform,” he added.
