30-SECOND TRAILER CONTEST
Attention all Nigerian shortfilm makers- the first and only Nigerian film festival in the Francophone world, NollywoodWeek Paris, is holding a competition to find an up and coming filmmaker to create its festival trailer for the next edition of the festival to be held in June 2015.
NollywoodWeek Paris is a four day film festival that showcases feature films from Nigerian directors and producers, subtitled in French, to an international audience to give these films a broader exposure in this new market. Past guests included Rita Dominic, OC Ukeje and Chris Attoh and notable directors such as Kunle Afolayan, Mahmood Ali-Bagoon and Tunde Kelani. Now its your turn to be among the pros!
Before March 15, 2015, please submit a storyboard or script of your proposed trailer for the festival’s third edition. The winning proposal will be announced and the producer will turn their script or storyboard into a 30-sec trailer which will be posted to the festival’s website, youtube channel, Facebook page, on French television and shown before each screening during the festival. This is a great opportunity for filmmakers to get noticed by the top directors of Nollywood and the French media industry.
