Three Nollywood movies, 93 DAYS, THE BRIDGE and ISOKEN will showcase in Hollywood, California, starting on Friday.
This is the first time that the foremost film programme in the world and the most historic of all of Hollywood’s cinema houses are teaming up to bring a film series from Africa to Hollywood.
Nigeria joined a select list of seven countries from around the world to be part of the prestigious national screening series, according to the organisers.
The inaugural ‘NOLLYWOOD IN HOLLYWOOD’ event would hold at the world famous Egyptian Theater in Hollywood with a red-carpet on Friday night, which would feature the screening of 93 DAYS.
It would be a question and answer series moderated by the Chairman of the African-American wing of the Directors Guild of America and an open air, post-screening Nigerian party on the historic Hollywood Boulevard. Also screening, on Saturday, are THE BRIDGE by Kunle Afolayan and ISOKEN by Jade Osiberu. Afolayan, Steve Gukas of 93 DAYS and Dakore Akande of ISOKEN would be the ambassadors of Nollywood at the event.
