Actor Kevin Spacey Supports Growth of Film Industry in Africa

U.S. actor and director Kevin Spacey said he sees opportunity for expanding film making in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Spacey spoke about his international outlook during a brief visit to South Africa Saturday for the premiere of a local short film he helped produce and in which he stars.

With backing from a whiskey company, Spacey ran a contest to find talent from the United States, Russia and South Africa.

A script from each country was chosen, and Spacey starred in and helped produce the three films, including South African Alan Shelley’s “A Spirit of a Denture,” which was given a red-carpet premiere in Johannesburg.

The 26-year-old Cape Town writer-director’s movie is about a workaholic dentist who gets a visit from a pirate.
