NOLLYWOOD IN HOLLYWOOD 2020
A Virtual Event

A three-day celebration of Nollywood Cinema hosted by
the USC School of Cinematic Arts, O2A Media Inc., and the American Cinematheque

Nollywood in Hollywood is a celebration of Nigeria’s growing cinema. From very inauspicious beginnings about twenty-five years ago, the industry grew to be the second largest in the world in terms of output. It is estimated that over 1,000 films are produced in Nollywood every year, most of them direct to video. In recent years, Nollywood films have garnered critical acclaim and have been exhibited at top film festivals. NOLLYWOOD IN HOLLYWOOD 2020 is the third edition of our annual exhibition of Nigeria's best films.

ALL PROGRAMMING WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE
AND IS OFFERED FREE TO THE PUBLIC.
