The Accelerate Five, as they are now called, have been soaring since their big win at the end of the Accelerate Filmmakers Project last week.
The five young filmmakers who were picked as winners in the Project have been going on media tour as they prepare to start their production process to create their own short films.
In the spirit of production, veteran Nollywood filmmaker, Mildred Okwo, hosted them on a lunch date, where she shared her experience working in the Nigerian film industry.
The movie Director’s passion for her profession could be felt as she exposed the nitty gritty of film production and the fluid life of a filmmaker.
Priye Diri, Emmanuel Oiseomaye, Micheal Akinrogunde, Adenike Adebayo and Joshua Olanrewaju have commenced production of their short film, which will premiere at the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) this year.
