Good news for the Nigerian film industry Nollywood as a Nigerian film makes entry for The Academy Awards consideration.
Genevieve’s ‘Lionheart’ movie has been picked by The Academy Awards aka Oscars for a nomination consideration in the forthcoming award ceremony in 2020.
Only about a year ago, the movie which is Genevieve’s first directorial debut was premiered on Netflix and about the first Nollywood film to get on the platform.
In another feat, ‘Lionheart’ becomes the first Nigerian film to be considered for an Oscars nomination in the ‘Best International Film’ category.
“The choice was made by the 12-person Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee, which was inaugurated in 2014 but unable to find a film meeting the selection criteria until now.” An excited Genevieve shared the news via her social media page.
