Inside Nollywood, a prominent platform for celebrating and promoting Nollywood, is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with the Andromeda Film Festival (AFF). This collaboration is set to redefine the landscape of the film festival circuit by creating a platform that champions a commitment to excellence, inclusivity, and honest competition.
The Andromeda Film Festival, an esteemed addition to the International Cinema Community, is known for its mission to combat unfair competition in the realm of film festivals. AFF’s distinctive approach involves accepting films into its Official Selection that meet the highest standards in cinematography and directing, a refreshing approach that reflects its commitment to nurturing the cinematic arts. AFF stands as a beacon for those who value the art of filmmaking, whether they are acclaimed industry veterans or emerging talents.
“At Inside Nollywood, our mission has always been to celebrate and elevate Nigerian cinema to the global stage,” says Musa Sanusi, Chief Operating Officer at Inside Nollywood. “This partnership with the Andromeda Film Festival resonates with our vision, as it not only provides a unique platform for filmmakers but also aligns with our values of inclusivity and fairness in the world of cinema.”
The AFF is distinct from many festivals due to its unwavering support of filmmakers at all levels of recognition. Its mantra revolves around creating a future for filmmakers by addressing their needs and concerns, regardless of their level of fame or experience. This approach is in perfect harmony with Inside Nollywood’s dedication to championing all aspects of the Nigerian film industry, from emerging talents to seasoned professionals.
In the spirit of this partnership, AFF offers an attractive entrance fee accessible to filmmakers from all segments, making it an ideal space for creators to showcase their cinematic brilliance without financial burdens. Moreover, AFF continues to support filmmakers even after their movies have been submitted, an approach that fosters lasting connections, protects their work, and ensures continued support.
This partnership doesn’t stop at the festival’s borders. Inside Nollywood’s collaboration with AFF unlocks a host of opportunities for filmmakers, including the distribution of their films to various festivals and the provision of waiver codes. AFF’s established team brings together a network of film festivals and platforms, extending the reach and promotion of the films showcased at the festival.
In addition to these features, AFF’s dedication to social media engagement complements Inside Nollywood’s existing digital presence. The festival’s active presence across social platforms aligns with the trend of film promotion and audience engagement, ensuring that the right eyes are on the showcased films. This approach is also expected to amplify the exposure of Nigerian cinema on the global stage.
Inside Nollywood and the Andromeda Film Festival are confident that this partnership will usher in a new era in recognizing and promoting Nollywood talent, offering filmmakers a unique opportunity to shine and connect with a global audience. Together, they share a commitment to celebrate the art of cinema and create an environment where every filmmaker’s work is not just appreciated but elevated to new heights.
