There was increase in the number of films that inluded “Blurred”, “Secret Circle”, “The Truth”, “Tainted Love”, “Impossible List” and “Chipoko”.

The most interesting film is “Chipoko” (Ghost).It is about two thieves namely Tonde and Peter whose activities turn fateful when they break into a haunted house.

Tables turn and Tonde is killed mysteriously at that house but Peter survives with a warning from the ghost. Will the ‘Chipoko’ come back for Peter’s soul? People were left in suspense.

The film was directed by a Chinhoyi University of technology student Nyasha Guzvha who is doing a bachelor of Science Honours in Creative Arts and Design.

“The Truth” it is a lesson to those that are in relationships. It centres on Webster and Daphne who were a perfect couple until something went wrong, putting an end to the to their relationship.

In the interest of other couples out there, they agreed to share the truth about their relationship and shed light on what they feel kept them together and what tore them apart.

This film was directed by Mpilo Moyo who is a writer, rock singer and actor.
