Nollywood actress Beverly Naya has been having such a great time at the ongoing 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

The actress and director has had a couple of activities lined up for this year’s event, which marks her very first time at the prestigious two-week ceremony in France.

Here’s what she has been up to.

Speaking Engagement

One of the first things Beverly Naya did when she arrived in France for the event was to speak at a conference about colorism and the role her new project ‘Skin’ plays.

She says, “Wow! Honoured to be speaking about colorism and @skinthedocumentary today at the Cannes Film Festival *pinch me*, I’m a little bit nervous but super excited. If you’re attending the Cannes Film Festival this year, please join me at the Pavillion Afrique tent today at 2:15 pm.”
