Glitz and glamour at The UK Nollywood Film Festival (Photos)

Last Friday 12th October 2018 witnessed the first ever UK Nollywood Film Festival, a vision of the UK Nollywood Producers Guild. The two day event featured an award night, film screening and a masterclass.

The UK Nollywood Film Festival otherwise known as UKNFF is underpinned by the vision of the UK Nollywood Producers Guild to empower and showcase the work of independent filmmakers especially those from the African descent. UKNFF is dedicated to Africans and supporters of African Filmmakers especially UK Nollywood.

Though all filmmakers qualify to submit their entries, UKNFF gives particular attention to the selection and screening of Nollywood films and films made by African youths or first and second time African Film Producers/Directors.

UKNFF is also interested in films and documentaries featuring African heritage and lifestyle even if produced or directed by non-Africans. These include micro budget films of under £50,000 with special attention paid to required an acceptable quality standard.

The event was held on Friday 12th October 2018 and Saturday 13th October 2018.
