Nigerian Director Bows New Feature With Help From Air France

1 June 2016 2:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran Nigerian helmer Kunle Afolayan wants the world to know his ambitions are sky-high. So for his fifth feature, “The C.E.O.,” he’s taking his premiere 30,000 feet into the air.

It’s a marketing twist that comes thanks to Air France, a corporate sponsor for the film, with select guests getting a first glimpse of the movie on June 1 aboard a flight from Lagos to Paris, where “The C.E.O.” will then get its theatrical premiere on the opening night of the NollywoodWeek film fest.

For Afolayan, who in recent years has emerged as one of the leading figures of the local film biz, the move from the red carpets of Lagos to the bright lights of Paris reflects a growing sense that the Nigerian industry – popularly known as Nollywood – is beginning to earn the world’s oft-grudging respect.

“More doors are opening,” he says.
