The Africa International Film Festival is always a huge event each year as several top movies are screened and judged in front of a select number of esteemed filmmakers.
This year’s festival, the 5th edition, will run from Sunday 8th November to Sunday 15th November in Lagos, Nigeria.
Feature film “Road To Yesterday” starring Genevieve Nnaji and Oris Erhuerho has been selected as this years Closing Night Film at the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF).
Road to Yesterday is an epic love story which trails a couple desperate to mend a broken marriage on a road trip to a relative’s funeral. However, the journey itself throws up secrets from a distant past, imperiling a lot more than just the marriage.
The Africa International Film Festival will also screen titles including Bazzi Gete’s Red Leaves; Jonas Carpignano’s Meditteranea; Akin Omotoso’s Tell Me Something Sweet and Desmond Elliot’s Reflections amongst many.
Earlier in October, the festival announced plans for its Best Feature Film, Documentary, Short and Animation Competition Screenings. Selected Entries will compete to win more than $5,000 in cash and prizes.
“Road to Yesterday” was written and directed by Ishaya Bako.
Road to Yesterday is Bako’s feature directorial debut.
