The grand finale of Script2Screen Africa reality TV show has produced Isidore as the winner of the Overall Best Short Film award.
Produced by Group 4 and directed by Nuhu Dalyop, it won N1 million star prize aside emerging as the overall best film of the show held at Silverbird Cinemas, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to the Project Director, Script2Screen Africa, Osas Osamor, Script2Screen is part of their commitment to establish a world-class film academy and studio in Nigeria, which will empower passionate young Africans to sell Africa’s unique stories.
“With the theme: ‘Film as a Catalyst for Revolution’ with a sub-theme: ‘Corruption Free Nigeria’, the show’s focus is to raise a new breed of filmmakers who will tell stories that would question the status quo, disrupt the conventional, change the narrative, reconstruct the headlines and reinvent the future of Nigeria, whilst also understanding that though film is big business, it has the capacity to create social impact,” she said.
Assistant Director of Isidore, Juliet Ezeigwe, said she went into script writing because of the ugly incident that happened to her while she was growing up. “I was raped by my school bus driver who took advantage of my innocence while I was growing up. As a result, I want to use film to create awareness to the unsuspecting parents and the entire public,” she stated.
