The NollywoodWeek Film Festival (www.NollywoodWeek.com) has announced a strategic partnership with UBA’s REDTV ahead of the 5th edition of the festival which takes place in Paris from May 11-14th, 2017.

As a direct consequence of this partnership, the Parisian audience will have an opportunity to get familiar with REDTV’s productions during a special session on web-series scheduled for Saturday, 13th May at 11:00am

“We share a common vision,” says Bola Atta, the Director of Marketing & Corporate Communications at UBA Group. “Our aim is to showcase a positive Africa throughout the world and the NollywoodWeek festival does just that”.

As this partnership grows, REDTV is expected to join the ranks of other major strategic partners of NollyWood Week such as Total, Air France and Angenieux who have supported the festival for several years now.

Nadira Shakur, Co-founder of NollywoodWeek adds that “this is just the beginning of what we expect to be a strong and mutually beneficial partnership, when we look for partnerships we think long term and that is what we envision for our partnership with REDTV as well.”

NollywoodWeek is a film festival organized by the French-based association Okada Media, headed by Serge Noukoué and Nadira Shakur.

The festival was created to fill the void of quality Nigerian cinema in the French market. “France is the birthplace of cinema and Nigeria has the second largest film industry in the world- it just made sense”, Executive Director Serge Noukoué stated.
