Hollywood Set To ‘Borrow’ From Nollywood

Hollywood is seen as the most watched and publicized movie industry in the world as it has stretched its wings into all nooks and cronies of the world.

Nollywood stands to be the 2nd largest industry in the world, but according to John Hagelston the American Cinematheque the Nigerian country’s cinema has a low profile in the U.S.A.

This partnership of Hollywood and Nollywood is to borrow some of its movies and show case it to the widest possible audience in Spain, Germany, Italy, Argentina and other countries.

This is what John Hagelston of the American Cinematheque, operators of the Egyptian Theatre, had to say:

“Africa’s most populous country is home to one of the world’s most prosperous film industries, but Nigerian cinema still has a relatively low profile in the U.S. The American Cinematheque’s mission to present the full range of motion pictures to the widest possible audience already includes annual programs devoted to new films from Spain, Germany, Italy, Argentina and other countries, so the chance to bring “Nollywood” to Hollywood for a night made perfect sense.” Also, director of another selection, THE BRIDGE, Kunle Afoloyan, noted that “I believe the Nollywood in Hollywood event is a course in the right direction. I’m glad that The Bridge will be screening as part of the programs and I also look forward to mutual exploration between the two worlds.”
