Hosted by curator and author Nadia Denton, this panel discusses the depiction of Nigeran experience on-screen, the deprivileging of a Eurocentric gaze, and the potential for international crossover success.

With panellists from all corners of the industry:

  • Larry Achiampong (artist filmmaker Finding Fanon, Relic 3)
  • Tomisin Adepeju (filmmaker, Appreciation, The Good Son)
  • Victoria Thomas (Polkadot Factory)
