The Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s movie will be premiered in Accra, at the Silverbird Cinema on 30th November, 2017.
This follows a successful showing at Cannes Film Festival, Durban International Film Festival and the British Urban Film Festival.
It was also part of the official selection for the Film Africa Festival which ran from October 27 to November 5.
At a press screening of the movie on Tuesday, Shirley Frimpong Manso said that the movie was collaboration between Ghanaians, Nigerians and some Swedish people.She also added that due to the vagaries of the film production in Ghana, she adopted a different strategy.
“Potato Patahto has been out for almost a year but we’ve decided to have a different approach. We decided to pursue different market because Ghana is not enough anymore. We been to festivals and we’re releasing in other countries too,” she said.
