nollywood in hollywood
Nollywood in Hollywood is a celebration of Nigeria’s growing cinema. From very inauspicious beginnings about thirty years ago, the industry grew to be the second largest in the world in terms of output. It is estimated that over 1,000 films are produced in Nollywood every year, most of them direct to video. In recent years, Nollywood films have garnered critical acclaim and have been exhibited at top film festivals. NOLLYWOOD IN HOLLYWOOD is the fifth edition of our annual exhibition of Nigeria’s best films.
The event will include screenings and networking events. It is co-presented by the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, The American Cinematheque at the Egyptian, O2A Media Inc., and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
