Nigerian Filmmakers Can Now Submit their Films to be Considered for the Oscars



Great news for Nigerian filmmakers!

The Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC) has shared that Nollywood filmmakers can now submit their feature film entries into the 93rd Academy Awards for the International Feature Film Category.

With the awards night set to hold on 25 April, 2021, the Academy Awards recently opened entries to honor the best films released globally.

Since it’s first submission of Genevieve Nnaji‘s “Lionheart” in 2019, the Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee has witnessed a rapid rise in the quality of Nigerian films, especially in storytelling.

Many filmmakers and industry practitioners have been yearning for better creative and business opportunities, and the submission has opened a new dimension for the Nigerian film industry and has certainly attracted more investors.

The NOSC is officially recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts to make submissions on behalf of the Nigerian film industry.

Films entries should be submitted to the NOSC by visiting before 2nd October, 2020. Information on special rules for the award can be found on, and [email protected] can be contacted for technical submission details and further enquires.

    We don’t need validation from other countries to show how well our movies are doing.

    I agree. We always seem to need some kind of validation from the Western world.

    I don’t think we should see it as seeking validation but rather looking for opportunities to get international exposure which brings about funding.
