Over the past decade, the Nigerian cinema industry has grown to become the second largest in the world, with young Nigerian filmmakers leading the charge.
The vibrant cinema scene has typically been dominated by a successful, yet tried and tested formula, but a new wave of distinctive African arthouse and experimental films are now competing for attention and budgets.
By embracing new, more affordable and accessible digital filmmaking technology, the new generation of Nigerian creatives are inspired at a grassroots level. With an ever-increasing appetite for unique stories and bold directors, streaming platforms around the world are also taking notice, with many establishing local production facilities.
The success of New Nigerian Cinema has been felt around the globe, garnering plaudits as international film festivals, while inspiring other fledgling movie industries.
