An encounter between Talent Press critics of the Berlinale Talents and Nigerian filmmakers/filmgoers will tomorrow, Saturday, March 26, 2016 attempt to confront the question: Is there a future for [Nigerian] film criticism?
The event which will be moderated by Derin Ajao is a panel discussion which will feature Oris Aigbokhaevbolo (Music In Africa) and Espera Donouvossi (Federation of African Cinema Critics) and several others.
“Good movie criticism can take you out of the confusion you’re left with when the lights come back on; it can make you care about movies, make you aware of the possibilities of movies,” the organizers said in a statement.
“Good movie criticism can break through the confusion that manifests as PR and confirm to you that somewhere in the world, sitting in the dark, someone else has felt what you felt,” it added.
The panel discussion will hold at Nigerian Film Corporation (beside Voice Of Nigeria), Ikoyi rd., Obalende, Lagos by 11am.
A keynote address will be delivered by Steve Ayorinde, Hon. Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Lagos State.
