A total of 138 movies will be screened at the 8th edition of the African International Film Festival, #2018AFRIFF, themed “The Many Faces of Woman”.
According to a report culled from Pulse.ng the festival’s founder, Chioma Ude said “The Many Faces of Woman”, is a visual exploration of the portrayal of women in cinema that raises discussions on the central question; ‘What is Woman?’
Laurent Polonceaux, the Consul General, commented on his enthusiasm with working with the festival whilst Amaechi Okobi Head Corporate Communications Access Bank emphasized on the Bank’s devotion to the arts.
Opening with the visually arresting epic Western tale “Sew the Winter to My Skin” a tale that follows the myth of a South African bandit in pre-apartheid South Africa, the 2018 AFIRFF will close with the highly anticipated “Nigerian Prince”, a Nigerian venture helmed by the capable Faraday Okoro.
Ude stated that 52 of the movies submitted across the African continent, are short films.
