New Delhi, the capital of India, is set to host Nollywood filmmakers this October in celebration of Nigeria’s Independence Day. The Nollywood Film Festival-India will be a celebration of film, music and arts festival for new talents from Nigeria. It will feature Nigerian film practitioners, fashion designers and musicians.
Co-director of Nollywood Film Festival and CEO of Big Hitz Records, Henry Money Samuel, comments from his Delhi base: “There is a large community of Africans, especially West Africans living in Delhi alone, which is where we are taking the festival to, for the first time. We hope to organize exhibitions; workshops and cultural tours that will make them connect with their roots.”
Films will be submitted for screening and discussions. The final night is an awards night, where winning films will be recognized and celebrated. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films. Send an email and trailer to Dera Igwe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
