My God as the creator of all things, my queen as the bone of my bone whom God has created to coproduce with me into manifesting greatness into our universe”.

After receiving over 60 impressive movies from mostly African and African American short-film directors and production houses, we finally came up with a list of 12 movies that made the final cut.
It was very difficult to streamline the list because almost all the entries were good enough. Our judges had the difficult task of putting this list together. The purpose of IAFF is to give the African short-film director a channel to connect with the rest of the world. Many misconceptions about Africa exist mostly via foreign movies so it is time we tell the African story from an African’s perspective and let the world see Africa from the eyeball of an African and not just that of an outsider as the case has almost always been. It is our goal to expose new African talents to the world.
These Short films center on religion, sex, Politics, marriage, relationships, crime, and business as it pertains to African societies, but most importantly they come from the perspective of Africans. The Short-film that is able to get the most views in combination with the highest votes will be awarded a $1000 (cash and gift package), while the runners up and the 3rd placed will go home with a $450 and $250 package respectively. We would like to thank all those who participated in the process and we hope that your talents impact the world.
You can also donate to contribute to the overall price package and contribute to the growth of the movie industry in Africa via the donate button below. Click on the title of the movie to view it. Remember a combination of the highest views and votes is what is required to win these prices. Voting ends May, 25th, 2020 and winners will be announced afterward.
These below are the 12 short-films gunning for the top spot.
Thank you so much for deciding to donate to IAFF and helping movie production in Africa. You can increase the donation by increasing the number in the box
Czure is a Nigerian born and raised producer/songwriter who currently lives in Houston Texas — home to some of the most talented Nigerians in the USA. Growing up in a music-loving household exposed him to the sounds of everyone from Fela to Dr. Dre from an early age. This without a doubt influenced his keen ear for, not just music, but “sounds” in general.
The ability to pick out the right tones is the hallmark of every producer’s sound and Czure definitely does this well! With over ten years of “music-making” experience tucked under his belt, its no wonder he is able to curate music that anyone can relate to.
Recently stepping into the spotlight as an artist himself, Czure has dropped a few singles that are actually rather impressive. The ability to wear numerous hats while creating gives him an unfair advantage if you will.
Listen below to his newest Afro-beat offering titled Dumb, I am hundred percent certain that this will move up the charts quickly.
