The official selection will explore the festival’s theme of the year- Covid, Conflict, Climate Change; through varying and captivating storytelling styles, genre and approaches. Also in line with the festival’s mission, the official selection will feature human-centred stories that seek to address themes of social relevance along the 17 SDGs.

Among the 100 selected titles, 10 hail from Nigeria including CSR-In-Action’s docudrama ‘Earth Women’ based on the challenges of women in extractive communities, and Umanu Elijah’s short film ‘A Place Called Forward’ on the effect of toxic carbonate pollution on climate change among others. The selection is evident of Nigerian storytelling beyond the frontiers of entertainment alone.

Presiding over the festival’s selection this year is a jury of eight members including; Christian Clark, Onome Ako, John Allan-Namu, Natalie Kyriacou, Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian, Danee Hamaza, Rania Al Jabban, and Lance Gould.

The NGO IFF mobile festival annually brings together thousands of advocacy intervention-driven multimedia content, in a bid to bridge the gap and create an opportunity for sharing knowledge, information and discussions around humanitarian and development projects.
