The festival is about bringing people together, behind the scenes and in the audience. While the project will be collaboratively executed, the organizing will also involve professionals who will share their skills, and sponsors who will contribute their resources. The event itself will provide a setting, much like peaceful campaign of film shows,cultural dance, music performance, games, and educational awareness where people regardless of their life experience sit together, laugh together, cry together and exchange ideas as an audience.

  • A huge and heartfelt THANKS to every organizer, filmmaker and member of the jury at Adamawa FF for selecting our film "Misplace the rabbits" as a SEMI-FINALIST entry! The social and transformative importance of your festival is not to be taken lightly. As long as there's a need for change in this world, filmmakers will keep on filming; and this kind of festivals will be our banner.

  • We are beyond grateful, โ€œWas I Next? The Sean Cribbin Storyโ€ has been chosen as a Semi-Finalist ๐Ÿ…at the Adamawa Film Festival (2021). The pandemic caused a festival delay and Adamawa contacted us early on, keeping us informed of the new dates. They graciously offered us a refund or the option to remain in the festival until the new dates were determined - how thoughtful! We are so glad we stayed with Adamawa ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜Š our very first film festival in Nigeria (Nollywood). They kept us well informed about judging rounds, announcement dates and festival activities. Nigeria is a global powerhouse for the entertainment industry, particularly film and media. To be selected as a Semi-Finalist in a year with a record number of entries coupled with a reduced number of available slots... we are honoured. โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

    Congratulations ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ to all the Official Selections, Finalists and Award winners at Adamawa Film Festival this season. It will be nice when socializing and travel are safe again - we could actually visit some of these fine festivals and meet other industry people. We are humbled and beyond excited for our Semi-Finalist Laurel! ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธ Thank you!

    We look forward to submitting our future projects to your world class festival - until then, all the best! Stay safe and be well. Highly recommended.
