If you are just hearing about this year’s edition, you’ve sadly missed out on 4 days of awesomeness. But not to worry, because we care about you — here are 7 reasons you must not carry last with the rest of AFRIFF 2018:
Thursday – day 5 is packed with a ton of activity. But a panel discussion with Clarence Peters, Oliver Aleogena, Emeka Ossai, Ani James and other renowned actors and filmmakers is at the top of our list. Don’t forget to sign up first!
‘Nigerian Prince’ by Faraday Okoro will also be showing on Day 6 – Friday at Genesis Cinema in The Palms. We won’t talk too much about how great the movie is, just watch the trailer here.
If you’re looking to get into co-production, Punuka Solicitors has got you covered. Catch them this Friday giving the best tips for filmmakers looking to get involved with local and international co-productions.
If you had Friday night plans you better cancel them. The AFRIFF festival party at Rooftop Deck, Landmark is the only place you’ll want to be this Friday night.
August Meeting the stage play is showing at Freedom Park on Day 8, that’s Sunday the 18th and you don’t want to miss it. Remember to hold your 5k for ticket, but we promise it’ll be worth every kobo.
