AFRIFF sponsors Nigerian students for training in the US


The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF), which runs from 9 to 16 November 2014
in Calabar, Nigeria will sponsor the top 10 students participating in its workshop
programme to attend a short film course at a prominent university in the US.

Festival founder Chioma Ude said, “AFRIFF has since its first edition in 2010, provided
free training and talent development opportunities for young people and aspiring
filmmakers. We have provided ground-breaking education in sound for film,
cinematography and screen writing for over 500 students.

“We believe we can use this model for a social revolution that will change the economic
horizon of the African film industry, by providing technical knowledge and skill sets to
the abundant talents in our film community.’

Following their training abroad the selected candidates will return to Nigeria to shoot a
short film which will feature in the festival’s students’ short category in 2015.
