Celebrating Female Filmmakers

Women’s International Film Festival Nigeria (WIFFEN)

The Women’s International Film Festival Nigeria (WIFFEN) is a premier film festival in Nigeria. The goal of the festival is to celebrate women in film around the world. The festival was birthed out of the desire to build a community of female filmmakers supporting and empowering one another to grow and thrive in the global film industry. This will also inspire young girls to aspire to tell their stories through film, without the fear of being looked down on or abused.
