HomeVida Awards 2015 - BellaNaija - December2015041On Friday December 4th 2015 the 6th edition of the Nigeria Integrity Film Awards took place at Victoria Crown Plaza Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos.

This year, HomeVida, in partnership with the School of Media and Communications, Pan Atlantic University launched the Creative Film Project. The Creative Film Project is an initiative developed by the School of Media and Communication and HomeVida to provide young and upcoming scriptwriters with an online database to store their scripts. It also includes training and professional support for scriptwriters to help them convert their scripts into films. The primary objective of the Creative Film Project is therefore to bridge the gap between talented scriptwriters and the film industry.
