A festival of African film is set to hold in Nollywood under the auspices of partner Air France, and its looking like an experience many film buffs don’t wanna miss.
Well, for those who might not be up to the financial implication, the online platform sure fills in.
Even the LA Times had something to say about the development;
” Nollywood symbolizes a nation discovering and deciphering itself through film. It produces about 1,600 movies a year, trailing India’s Bollywood but more than double what Hollywood releases. There are few precise statistics, but a 2014 U.S government report estimated that the Nigerian film industry, which has since grown significantly, employed about 1 million people and generated more than $600 million for the economy. The quality of films has improved since the VHS era of the 1980s; Netflix this year began streaming” “Lionheart,” the first original Nollywood movie acquired by the company.
Travelling the Air France way ? for this trip is going to be amazing! The screening of these three movies – Up North, King of Boys and Lionheart + the panel conversations by actor Banky W and directors like Tope Oshin and Kemi Adetiba will definitely be so interesting. We can’t wait to experience this trip with Air France!
