The third edition of the Accelerate Filmmaker Project has selected its top five entries.
Twenty-five participants were trained by Nigeria’s top film industry professionals in production design and art direction; cinematography; editing; script writing and character development; and directing last week.
The initiative, set up by African entertainment portal Accelerate TV, aims to sharpen the skills of Nigeria’s young aspiring filmmakers and give them the opportunity to make their own short films. These will debut at Nigeria’s AFRIFF 2019 film festival and will also be made available on Accelerate TV.
A post on Accelerate TV’s Instagram page said: “The final five filmmakers emerging from the Accelerate Filmmaker Project 2019… which means five dope short films are coming to you this year!”
