The move is designed to support talent development, bridge the gaps in current skill sets and build capacity in technical skills development, audio and sound design, local- and foreign-language localisation and script writing and story development.

Ijeoma Onah, the founder of NIFS, took to Instagram to say the talent programme will run alongside the film summit, which will be held from August 30 to September 1.
