Mo Abudu’s ‘Fifty’ is set to premiere at the 2015 London Film Festival. The film which stars Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim, is Mo Abudu’s quest to showcase African women coming of age, loaded with increasingly similar aspirations and dilemmas faced by their contemporaries everywhere, while yet navigating unresolved traditions and obligations.
FIFTY will have its Festival premiere on Saturday, 17th October 2015, at the Vue 7 Cinema, London, and a special grand Nigeria premiere on the 13th of December 2015 at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Also at the festival but in the official competition category is Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba as an African warlord. The film has already made headlines by becoming the first Netflix production to compete at this week’s Venice Film Festival.
It will be available to stream on the video-on-demand service in October on the same day it is released in cinemas.
