AGN International Festival (in partnership with the African Travel Film Festival) is a celebration of the brightest Nigerian film and television actors, and it will feature a wide range of events, including a red carpet gala and awards, film screenings, panel discussions, city tours, workshops and seminars, where actors, filmmakers, and other creative professionals can network and learn from each other - as well as meet and engage with their fans and supporters in the diaspora.
Actors are cultural ambassadors of Nigeria, who are daily using their talents and skills to contribute immensely to growing Nollywood as an industry, and the Nigerian economy at large. Despite the challenges that actors face globally, we recognise that Nollywood is a global cultural force with a huge impact on the African diaspora, and we believe that Nollywood has a lot to offer the world - thanks to the storytellers who continue to create magical performances on screen.
Our mission is to showcase Nollywood actors to the world, provide opportunities for actors and filmmakers to network, learn from some of the best in the business, and celebrate the incredible talent and creativity of our actors. We believe that the festival will be a great opportunity to showcase Nigerian talents and promote cultural understanding, fostering the bilateral ties between Nigeria and the United States of America.
We believe that the AGN International Festival is an important event, not only for the guild but the entire Nigerian film industry and will be a great opportunity to build relationships with international filmmakers and producers as well as promote our arts & culture and some of Nigeria's biggest brands.
