Inside Nollywood (IN) Film Fellowship Cohort 1 – 2023

Deadline: 16th April 2023

Inside Nollywood (IN) Film Fellowship Cohort 1 – 2023

Film writing/content creation is an art and also, a full-scale adventure. The Fellowship is a remote, faculty-level programme that introduces you to the various forms of content creation in the film writing and journalism space. You will be mentored by the best in the industry how to critique, craft ideas, build a portfolio and reach for the stars, internationally.

This cohort will run from May to July, 2023 and Fellows will be assigned to film content creation platforms to run projects of their choice at the end of the programme.

The goal is to improve the quality if film journalism in the African film space, one talented person at a time. Africa is the world’s focus for screen content now and you must be willing to contribute to this ecosystem’s expansion.

Last year, Inside Nollywood took its commitment to the Nigerian film industry a notch higher with the launch of the Film Content Creation Fellowship, a first-of-its-kind fellowship for young creative journalists interested in Nollywood.

The IN fellowship debuted in September 2022, with fifteen journalists who have since gone on to do what we desperately hoped for — further improve the quality of conversations about the Nollywood industry.

With the support of our mentors, carefully selected for their varying experiences and platforms, we embarked on what we dare say, remains one of our greatest achievements to date.

Riding on the euphoria of the astronomical success of our maiden edition, we are pleased to announce that we are back!

This year, The IN Fellowship will broaden its journalism scope. This is hinged on last year’s not one size fits all strategy. Successful applicants will explore more than just film journalism with sometime dedicated to interacting with actual players in our subject industry.

Enthusiastic creatives who are interested in broadening their knowledge about the Nigerian film space and in spreading the word…creatively!
