Giving the Young Nigerian Animation Film Sector a Voice
Between the 9th and the 13th of April, the Institut français du Nigéria in partnership with the Goethe-Institute and the Franco-German cultural fund, launched the project “Giving the Young Nigerian Animation Film Sector a Voice” by organising a workshop on animated film in Abuja (Ventures Park)
The workshop was facilitated by Bastien Dubois, a French animated film expert. The fifteen participants (which included professionals, teachers and students) from Abuja, Lagos, Kano, Yola, Kaduna and Jos, started an 8-month project, coordinated by two experts (German and French) in order to improve their technique and increase their knowledge.
Following this workshop and an online session, a second workshop and a symposium will be organised in Lagos.
This project is part of the French Embassy’s strategy to support the Nigerian animated film industry and develop relationships with the thriving Nigerian movie scene.
