The Nigerian Film Festival is an event that will bring internationally recognized film makers to colleges and universities in America. The Film Festival will take place February 2017 to coincide with Black History Month celebration. Our special invited guests will be the filmmakers themselves, US Film Industry Professionals and Industry Executives.
This event will provide an opportunity for our audience to go on a journey of present day African themed films. The films shown will give our audience the opportunity to share the realities of today’s Nigeria and get a sense of “what’s really happening on the continent”. The festival will also open up the possibilities of business opportunities between US based professionals and Nigeria. There will be a panel discussion at the end of the screenings to allow for our featured filmmakers to talk about their work and Nollywood in general. Nollywood is the term used to refer to the Nigerian Film Industry which boast of being the second largest film producing industry in the world.
