Festival Of Indigenous African Language Films On The Way


The management of Remdel Multimedia and Centre for Black African Arts and Civilization  (CBAAC), are set to hold the 4th edition of the Festival of Indigenous African Language  Films.

The festival, which is conceived as an exposition of indigenous African Language films,  according to the Festival Director, Biodun Ibitola, is the best way to project the potential  of diverse indegeneous languages of African nationalities, “although the films are expected  to be sub-titled in English and or French, to give them the desired universality. African  language will enrich the content of African films and project better the over all image of  the African nationalities so as to expose these cultures globally.”
