AFRIFF 2014
November 9th - November 15th 2014
Tinapa, Calabar
The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) conceived by Chioma Ude is a world class showcase that presents a complete immersion into the world of film making with participation from local and international filmmakers and professionals, celebrities, actors, directors, film critics, buyers, distributors, visual artists, film students, amateurs, equipment manufacturers, and international press.

Maintaining its inaugural theme “Africa Unites”, the vision is to raise awareness in Africa about the vast potential the entertainment industry holds and the impact it can generate in the economy. To establish bridges for partnership with international counterparts to ensure quality, expertise and global standards access the local industry, accelerating its sustainable development. AFRIFF also aims to re-establish Africa’s significance as the original birth home of civilization and indeed the last frontier for unique film stories and content development.

The weeklong event is set to become Africa’s new exciting annual destination for fantastic film experience and celebration every November, comprising a top class film programme; talent development and technical training series aimed at raising local industry standards; business sessions and networking opportunities, as well as a unique Film and Equipment market that will encourage and grow content trade out of Africa and global partnerships.

Since its inaugural edition, hosted in Port Harcourt, Nigeria in 2010, the Festival has brought together:

More than 2000 industry guests,
More than 500 workshop participants.
500 + international entries from professional and amateur filmmakers around the world
Guests celebrities such as Lynn Whitfield, Tchina Arnold, Rockmond Dunbar, Malcom Jamal-Warner, Giancarlo Esposito, Eriq Ebounaey, Hakeem Kae Kazeem, Agbani Darego, and Chris Aire.
An international and domestic audience of 10,000 + guests

"This partnership is a fantastic testament to the hard work of the OH TV team this year. The OH Creative brand is not only at the forefront of the UK creative media industry but recognised as a force to be reckoned with on a global platform. We are now firmly at the centre of African entertainment and content development. Our Creative Directors are consultants to global brands and events including The Experience, in Lagos Nigeria (one of the world's biggest global gospel gatherings) to now this; The African International Film Festival. This partnership is particularly dear to us since our commitment to the African Film industry, through our film 'Mirror Boy' (2011) broke barriers, set standards for African film makers to aspire to and created an amplification to the voice of the African Film industry. Borrowing from the famous words of the Mirror Boy: Are you ready for the Journey?" - OH TV Station Director, Vidal Juba
