AFRIFF, US Mission hold animation contest
The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) and the US Mission in Nigeria have joined forces to hold a competition for Nigerian animators aimed at supporting the country’s creative industries.
The US Mission will contribute US$25,000 to AFRIFF which will award US$5,000 each to the best five teams of young animators.
The teams, made up of three to five members, will submit an animated short film based on a new point of view or unique perspective that addresses one of these themes: climate change; elections and good governance; women’s empowerment; youth engagement; and countering disinformation.
The best five will be screened at the upcoming 11th edition of AFRIFF, scheduled to be held on November 6-12.
The deadline for submission is October 30. To register, click here.
