All That’s Happened in Nigerian Filmmaking So Far

A lot has happened this year but what seems to stick to everyone’s mind is that this was the year a global pandemic caused the whole world to stop still. However, some positive things happened in the world of Nigerian filmmaking during the first half of this year and we’d like to refresh your memory by running through them.

Netflix announced its presence in Nigeria via this tweet on February 25th.

The Annual AMVCAs took place in March and we talked about the outfits for days.

Who would have thought Omoshola was way ahead of his time with this mask?

The Critics Company, which consists of teenage sci-fi filmmakers in Kaduna, was nominated for the Webby Awards for social media in the Art and Culture Category.

Although they did not win the award, we are still very proud of them for being the first Nigerians to be nominated for this award alongside big media names such as BBC Culture, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and Art Basel.

We received a teaser for Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys 2.

Netflix announced its partnership with Mo Abudu to bring to life two of our favorite classics.

We are getting a series-adaptation of Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives and a film adaptation of  Prof. Wole Soyinka’s Death And The King’s Horseman!

Ikorodu bois received their much-deserved recognition.

We got a teaser for Nollywood’s first time-travel movie.

This movie is going to change the game in Nigerian filmmaking and we are here for it.

We got a poster for a Nollywood LGBT film titled ÌFÈ.

We don’t know when and what platform the film will be released but we can’t wait.

Genevieve Nnaji was selected as a member of the 2020 Class of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Director, Akin Omotoso, was also selected as a member and we are super proud of them.

It’s been an interesting first half of the year and we look forward to what the rest of the year has to offer. Hopefully, it’s more good news.
