ABOUT the Nigerian Film Festival

The Nigerian Film Festival is an experience that brings internationally recognized film makers of African influence to colleges and universities in America. 

2019 is a year that marks 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia. Within the African diaspora community, this year is being declared as “The Year of Return,” inviting the global African family to a birth-right journey back to their home in the motherland. The Nigerian Film Festival looks to draw attention to this occasion by exploring the effects of slavery and its resultant colonization on Africa and its people through the lenses of four different filmmakers. 

Journey with us as we celebrate Black History Month this year in the United States, and recognize the historic events and contributions people of African descent have had in the global community. 

Our special invited guests will include filmmakers, prominent thought leaders, and industry executives. This event provides our audience exclusive screenings of present day African-themed films, and showcases the wealth of talent within the African diaspora.

The festival also features network opportunities between U.S. based professionals and Africa. Join us for an engaging panel discussion where our acclaimed filmmakers will discuss their work and what’s in store for Africa in the next 400 years.
