New York and Toronto have been selected to host the next two editions of the Nollywood Travel Film Festival (NTFF). The NTFF, which is Nigeria’s biggest travel film festival, hosts screenings of Nollywood films in cities around the world.
The festival will be hosted in Toronto from the ninth to the thirteenth of October, at the University of Toronto, while the New York edition will take place from the 17th to 20th of October.
NTFF Founder Mykel Parish told newsmen today that there will be lots of interesting conversations on ways to improve the standard of Nollywood and expose its products to bigger audiences.
He described the festival as a form of film tourism designed to change the African narrative through film and fostering relationships with developed countries. The 2017 edition of the festival held at Toronto during the annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
