The Wedding Party is almost here! We watched the trailer a while back and we can’t lie, we got pretty excited. And now the movie by Kemi Adetiba was premiered during the opening night of the Toronto International Film Festival(TIFF).
The Wedding Party is the first but not the only Nollywood movie to be premiered during the festival.
A good number of the movie cast plus executive producer, Mo Abudu, was present at the premiere including David Oyelowo who is a British-American actor with Nigerian roots.
In other news, here is a round-up of what’s been happening at TIFF2016 for Nollywood.
There’s been so much excitement for the industry especially after TIFF chose Lagos for its “City To City” spotlight which means 8 movies are to be premiered during the international festival- The Wedding Party, 76, Oko Ashewo, Just Not Married, Green White Green, Okafor’s Law, The Arbitration and 93 Days.
Nollywood is getting more international recognition and we are super proud.
Still on #TIFF2016, Rita Dominic(star actress in the movie- 76) was interviewed by The Globe and Mail and she talked about the industry feat, how far she has come and the possibilities ahead.
The festival is meant to run from September 8th to 18th. We’ll be keeping you updated on all the gist.
