In furtherance of Relativity Education’s engagement with the African International Film Festival (AFRIFF) to boost capacity for creative professionals in Africa, twenty young African professionals are currently in Los Angeles  to hone their craft through training and development as well as create rich networks in the global market, and pursue interesting projects and initiatives.

Uti Nwachukwu, Lala Akindoju, Linda Ejiofor, Lilian Esoro, Adesua Etomi, Gideon Okeke and fourteen others are the first beneficiaries of this initiative. In a few days,  these young creative professionals will serve as Relativity Schools premier Alumni class on the African continent.

AFRIFF is committed  to raising awareness about African Cinema, its vast potentials and the tremendous socio-economic impact it has not only on African economies but other third world and developing economies as well. To use cinema to create a revolution that will change the social and economic horizon of Africa, by providing the wherewithal to the abundant talents resident in our communities to rise up and reach for their ideals. Establish bridges for partnership with international counterparts to ensure quality, expertise and global standards access the local film industries, accelerating their development sustainably. AFRIFF also aims to re-establish Africa’s significance as the original birth home of civilization and indeed the last frontier for unique film stories and content.

The young professionals were super excited at this opportunity to meet, interact and learn from Hollywood movie makers. See some pictures from their time in LA
