Other industry professionals on the panel include Bukola Oloyede (Country Manager, Sony Nigeria), Chris Odeh (Senior Producer, Sozo Films), and Kayode Kasum (Founder, Filmtrybe).

The pitching session, which is an important segment of the biennial conference, will help to identify film and content development ideas from aspiring film professionals that will be supported and made into full film projects after the conference.

The goal is to give wings to aspiring professionals in the film and content creation business. The event targets students and future professionals in areas like film production, movie critiquing, directing, film financing, marketing, and content creation.

Set to take place at 10am on October 26, 2023, at The Marriot Hotel, Ikeja, this edition is themed ‘Next Gen Evolve’. It is convened by Blue Pictures, a foremost film distribution outfit in West Africa, in partnership with the Nigerian International Film and TV Summit.

On what to expect from the event, the convener of the initiative and Chief Executive Officer of Blue Pictures, Joy Efe Odiete, said, “The essence of the conference is to provide a platform for the youths to interact with personalities that have the wherewithal to sharpen their careers in the film business. It was inspired by my experience when I joined the industry, because there was nobody to lean on for mentorship. So this conference is designed to provide the support starters would need to fit into the industry. We hold it biennially, so we could have time to prepare those with successful pitches before taking on a new batch”.

Notable film professionals billed to speak at the day-long industry event include Adedayo Thomas (CEO, National Film and Video Censors Board), Uche Nwuka (Director, Bank of Industry), Patrick Donald Lee (Executive, Viva Cinemas), Mary Ephraim (President, Homelands Films), and Tochukwu ‘Dr Foy’ MacFoy (Founder, Energize Music).
