Welcome To

Eastern Nigeria International Film Festival (ENIFF)

ENIFF is inspired by the long history Eastern Nigeria has with Nollywood and the African Storytelling industry. We invest in the need to transform storytelling through a changing storytelling environment that demands redefining the role of African filmmaking, locally and globally. It provides a platform and programs for independent filmmakers, artists and storytellers working in film and digital media. ENIFF is a competitive festival, and it’s unique as activities run through the year and cumulate in an annual festival held in November. WE screen films in all genres from around the world, and we give priority to female filmmakers.
