Last night, The British Council hosted the fabulous cast and crew of FIFTY to a special pre-premiere cocktail at Stephen St. Kitchen in London, ahead of Saturday’s BFI London Premiere. The premiere will hold at the Vue 7 Cinema, Leicester Square, London.
The cast turned out in style, looking autumn-chic, and there was a special surprise pink birthday cake & gift presentation for Dakore, as it was her birthday.
Earlier in the year, Fifty was selected under the ‘Love Category’ amongst a diverse selection of films and events on the BFI London Festival programme. The movie is perfectly suited to this year’s festival theme “The Year of the Strong Woman”.
Starring Ireti Doyle, Dakore Akanda, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim, Fifty is set in Lagos, and celebrates the pulse and energy of this fast developing metropolis and explores the diversities and complexities of its people through the lenses of its women.
FIFTY will have its grand Nigerian premiere on the 13th of December 2015 at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
