The 2018 African International Film Festival is back and promises to be bigger than ever. The event is scheduled to hold between Sunday, November 11, 2018, and Saturday, November 17, 2018.
This year’s festival will revolve in conversations about factors affecting films in Africa. The film festival, which is in its 8th edition, will host film curators across the continents, local and international filmmakers to a world class showcase of the world of film making.
Aside from actively promoting African films, the film festival partners with international bodies to train students and beginner filmmakers. Last year, 20 students won scholarships to CineF’abrique, a film school in Lyon, France.
This year, the festival will hold workshops for talents, to improve skills in the African film industry. AFRIFF was founded by Chioma Ude, in 2010. It is the most prestigious film festival from Nigeria and celebrates films by African filmmakers.
