Only feature films are eligible in the film category.
The Founder and Festival Director, Chioma Ude said, “I am happy to announce the entry process for our eleventh festival edition. After Amazon purchased films from our catalogue list from the previous year, we are now confident in our ability to assist filmmakers distribute their films with our collaboration with an international streaming service. We are already engaging with other streaming services that are keen in-licensing and acquiring films from the festival. This year’s programme is devoted to the tremendous opportunities presented by Amazon Prime Video and others offer. This has allowed us to dream and keep creating new and authentic experiences for our audience.”
The festival would like to encourage filmmakers to submit entries on time as late entry submissions will be accepted only via waiver codes until 30 July 2022.
