Halima’s Vote wins two AFIFF awards
Halima’s Vote, a Nigerian animated film adapted from Onyinye Ough’s anti-corruption book of the same name, has won two awards at the 2021 Africa Film for Impact Festival (AFIFF).
At the event, which took place in Abuja on November 5, the film took home the awards for Best Animation and Best Film on Accountability & Good Governance.
The film, from Lagos cartoon studio Basement Animation, encourages young girls and women to speak out against bad governance and also tries to show the negative consequences of vote-buying and selling on Nigeria’s public goods and services.
The AFIFF is dedicated to showcasing, celebrating and empowering films and filmmakers committed to social change themes in movie production across the African continent and the world.
