Plans are in top gear for the 2017 edition of the Africa International Film Festival, holding between October 29 and November 4; and these are the films we are excited to see
Touted as one of the biggest gatherings of industry stakeholders and movie lovers on the continent for the celebration of film and film production, AFRIFF has also spearheaded multi-dimensional discussion on the culture of film in Africa since its inception in 2010.
Anchored by Uti Nwachukwu and Kemi Lala-Akindoju, the glamorous show also thrilled guests to a series of Broadway performances featuring Gideon Okeke who reenacted the life and times of the great Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Adesua Etomi and A’rese, a show which earned great applause and standing ovation from the audience.
