Discover the “New wave of Nigerian cinema”: a new stylistic and aesthetic approach emerges in Nigerian cinema

The organizers of the NollywoodWeek Film Festival (http://NWFF.eventive.org) have announced that this year’s online edition will feature films that hint at the emergence of a new style in the Nigerian film industry. “Author and experimental films find their place in a landscape that has been dominated by a predominantly commercial agenda in the past.”, said festival director Nadira Shakur.

This year’s edition, which will take place from May 6 to 9, presents an array of films made by a group of vibrant young Nigerians who break away from old codes and include new trends in the types of stories they tell and the cinematic style they use.

For Shakur, “This new approach to cinema shows incredible maturity, is inspired by styles from around the world, while remaining faithful to a strong Nigerian identity. The directors tackle more varied themes, such as mental health, than one found in the film For Maria (https://bit.ly/3gNWIPu) or in About a boy (https://bit.ly/3aUCsIi), which will premiere at the festival this year. The opening film All Na Vibes (https://bit.ly/3xAIozK), which addresses the issue of alienated youth in Nigeria‘s urban centers, is another example of this new wave of directors bringing new voices and telling innovative stories. “

The NollywoodWeek Film Festival aims to bring the best of Nigerian talent to the world stage. This year, it has expanded to accept films from other African countries and the Diaspora. Festival co-founder Serge Noukoué said: “Nollywood today is a source of inspiration for many other countries, not only in Africa but also around the world. It is therefore natural that the festival should expand in order to create this dialogue between the Nigerian film industry and the many other infant industries around the world who wish to emulate the success of Nollywood. “

Despite being live, this year’s edition will still include discussions with directors after each film. There will also be round tables on screenwriting, financing the animation sector in Africa and the distribution of African content. This year, the festival will present more than 30 films, including feature films, animations and short films.
