Mozambique won the second place in the 16th international Agricultural Film Festival (Agrofilm 99) held in October 1999 in Nitra, in Slovakia. The winning film was a 13-minute production called 'War on Hunger', which showed the losses involved in existing harvest storage facilities. It also showed how to build improved silos using simple techniques. The film was produced during a study of communication in rural areas and was part of the campaign organised on the theme of post-harvest techniques by the Ministry for Agriculture and Fisheries. 'War on Hunger' was assisted by the participation of local communities, and was supported by the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture. Two sound tapes, each lasting nine minutes, were also produced. In 1997, Mozambique won a special FAO prize at the same festival for the video 'Drought: the forward-looking farmer is worth double'.
