The prestigious Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) reopened in Lagos, Nigeria, for its 7th edition on October 29th and the festival schedule included film screenings and seminars.
On the final night of the 2017 Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) which held on Saturday, November 4 was the AFRIFF Globe Awards which took place at the Eko Hotel & Suites.
This year, there was a double dose of films, as the opening night selection consisted of one short film, ‘Waiting for [email protected]’, an ode to the missing Chibok girls, abducted from their secondary school in 2014, directed by Ifunanya Maduka, and the Zambian entry, ‘I am not a Witch’, helmed by Rungano Nyoni. Both films were selected on the strength of their merits, as they highlight important topical social issues relating to African children.
Kemi Lala Akindoju, Wale Ojo, Uche Jombo, Linda Ejiofor, Hilda Dokubo and Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi were some of the A-list stars who made their appearance on the red carpet.
As expected, some of your fave celebrities are in attendance.
