I am a film industry specialist with 15 years of experience as a Curator, Impact Producer and Author. My focus has been on cinema of the African diaspora and I specialise in Nigerian Cinema.
Currently, I am the impact producer for Nigerian art house film FOR MARIA EBUN PATAKI (Dir: Dami Orimogunje). FOR MARIA is the first feature film from Nigeria to deal with the sensitive issue of post-partum depression.
My two books include The Black British Filmmakers Guide to Success and The Nigerian Filmmaker’s Guide to Success: Beyond Nollywood. I co-produced the BBC World Service radio documentary SHOOTING IT LIKE A WOMAN, a take on women in the Nigerian film industry.
In recent years I have worked with the British Film Institute, British Council, London Film School, Comic Relief, BBC Arabic Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.
I am also an official V&A African Heritage Tour Guide.Read More
