DENVER, BELIZE CITY, DAKAR – November 16, 2023 – Belize Global Media LLC (BGM) is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking collaboration with Askkanwii Filmmaking Hub, a Colorado non-profit organization, marking the union of creative forces to bridge the opportunities between Belize, Guadalupe, United States, and the continent of Africa.

Ousmane Ndoye, the visionary founder of Askkanwii, recently embarked on a visit to Belize to meet with Nigel P. Miguel, the founder of Belize Global Media. The purpose of this historic meeting was to establish a dynamic platform that fosters creative, technical, and business collaboration within the media and entertainment sector.

“Our collective objective is to leave a legacy for future filmmakers and musical artists who can be empowered to share their creative excellence with the world,” expressed Nigel P. Miguel, founder of Belize Global Media. The partnership aims to create a robust ecosystem that empowers BIPOC creatives to reach global audiences.

During his visit, Ousmane Ndoye participated in the Indigenous Filmmaker’s panel at the 2023 Belize International Film Festival, where he shared his inspiring journey from Senegal to Colorado. In Colorado, Ndoye established a film educational program, connecting filmmakers throughout the diaspora, exemplifying the power of global collaboration in the film industry.

“We are about connecting people and their stories beyond borders. We believe that this partnership will elevate the rich talents and stories that already exist within our own communities,” shared Ndoye. “We look forward to creating pathways for others to follow in the industry.”

In an exclusive interview with Analia Perera, a reporter on BGM’s original show, ‘Kids, News Network (KNN),’ filmed on location at KALOS Studios Ltd., Ousmane Ndoye discussed the mission and vision of Askkanwii, emphasizing the importance of nurturing talent and fostering cross-cultural exchange.

This partnership between Askkanwii and BGM signifies a transformative step forward in the global entertainment landscape. Both entities are poised to become true change agents, facilitating meaningful connections and empowering creative voices on a global scale. “This meeting was birthed when I met Ousmane at SeriesFest 2023 and I am excited to see what we can contribute to Colorado’s talented filmmakers and beyond”, says Kevin Shand, founder of Pedras Productions.
