Nine Nollywood films have been selected for screening at the Woodpecker Film Festival (WFF) scheduled to hold in New Delhi, India in September.
Kunle Afolayan‘s award-gathering October 1, Biyi Bandele‘s cinematic adaptation of the novel, Half of a Yellow Sun, Obi Emelonye‘s Thy Will Be Done and Emem Isong‘s Champagne are among the films to be showcased.
Others include Silent Tears, Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Brothers, Dolls House and Bedlam.
The films will be screened during the World Panorama session of the festival which begins on September 17, 2015. Narender Yadav, founding director of the festival said, “It’s for the first time that a serious attempt is being made to bring Nigerian cinema to the Indian audience. I am sure this is going to be an enriching experience for cinema lovers in India. At the same time, these films will also attract (a) large number of Nigerian youths, who are in New Delhi either for their higher studies or for work. Overall, it’s going to be an exciting feature of our festival this year.“
