Afridiziak is proud to be a cultural partner for the Beyond Nollywood weekend at the BFI.

Contemporary Nigerian filmmakers are determined to recapture the image of their country for international audiences, and as a result have created a vibrant film culture of their own. Screening at many festivals worldwide, their work has wowed audiences with its style, storytelling and ideas. This September, African Odysseys will take you Beyond Nollywood, and will showcase the work of new Nigerian filmmakers and confront the issues of the past via world-class, 21st-century cinema. This exciting weekend of talks, screenings and networking begins with an official launch of Nadia Denton’s new book ‘The Nigerian Filmmaker’s Guide to Success: Beyond Nollywood’. The weekend line up includes:
