New director Maxine Chantel celebrates film award win

SUCCESS: Maxine Chantel and actor Ken Smart

IT WAS all smiles for first time director Maxine Chantel at the Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts (BEFFTA) Awards.

Chantel, pictured here with actor Ken Smart, who plays the lead role in her new film Moral Conflict, won a Best Screenwriter award.

The comedy drama tells the story of Pastor Chuks (played by Nollywood actor Ken Smart) who is struggling to increase the growth of his church.

The plot thickens when his mother Tope arrives from Nigeria and takes an immediate dislike to his white English wife Denise (Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson), due to cultural differences.

Among the other winners was Nollywood movie director, Obi Emelonye, who won the Best Director Award while his movie Last Flight to Abuja won Best Film.

The awards took place at The Hippodrome in Golders Green, north London.
