The Nollywood Travel Film Festival (NTFF) will spotlight female directors in Nollywood at the Glasgow edition. This is in line to promote and encourage female filmmakers in Nollywood.
Blessing Egbe, Tope Oshin and Jade Osiberu are all set to showcase.
Blessing Egbe would present ‘The Women’ staring Omoni Oboli, Kate Henshaw, Rita Dominic, Ufuoma Mcdermott and Katherine Obiang. “The Women’ offers an honest insight into marriage and friendship in the lives of four couples in Nigeria, as they go on a weekend getaway for a birthday party.
Tope Oshin will premier her latest film ‘We Don’t Live Here Anymore’ which stars Funlola Aofiyebi and Osas Ighodaro. The film follows two teenage boys, Tolu and Chidi, who find themselves embroiled in a high-stake scandal that could alter the course of their future.
My passion is to develop Africa digitally says Kalada Meshack-Hart NTFF, which is the largest travel festival in Nigeria, will showcase the filmmakers in partnership with Africa In Motion Film Festival. Africa in Motion Film Festival is Scotland’s major annual celebration of African cinema with a special focus on women in film in its 2018 edition billed to hold from Oct. 26 to Nov. 4. In 2017, the NTFF celebrated new entrants in the Nollywood in Toronto during the annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). NAN also reports that the Glasgow edition would feature conversations around women in film, culture exchange and the expansion of the Nigerian film industry.
