Beyond Nollywood

BFI Southbank, London

20 – 21 September 2014

Contemporary Nigerian filmmakers are determined to recapture the image of their country for international audiences, and as a result have created a vibrant film culture of their own. Screening at many festivals worldwide, their work has wowed audiences with its style, storytelling and ideas. African Odysseys this month will take you Beyond Nollywood, and will showcase the work of new Nigerian filmmakers and confront the issues of the past via world-class, 21st-century cinema. This exciting weekend of talks, screenings and networking begins with an official launch of Nadia Denton’s new book ‘The Nigerian Filmmaker’s Guide to Success: Beyond Nollywood’.
