The Head Lagos State Government Film Barr.Mrs Bukkie Agbamiloja was also at the event.
Just before the closing film Mr. Hope Yongoh from NEXIM Bank Limited presented a paper on the theme of the 4th Eko International Film Festival “Nollywood in the Global Film Market”.
In his address it is now clear that Nigeria does not have a film market and deserves one. Nigeria with over 150 million people has only 60 screens while India is having about 13000 screens and you cannot be talking about a viable film industry without having a film market.
The festival organizer will issue certificate of participation for all the movies that was screened during the 4th edition of the festival. All plans are now focused on the 5th edition when the film festival will start giving awards in different categories.

TULA: THE REVOLT

TULA 2

Tula The Revolt is a breath taking and true story about repression, desperation and betrayal. An account of the unequal fight for justice but most of all about inspiration, love and freedom. Tula The Revolt is an international production about the leader of the Slave Revolt of 1795 on the island of Curacao, which at the time fell under the rule of the Republic of the United Netherlands. It tells the true story of a man who had the courage to stand up against his oppressors and who tried to give his people back their freedom in a non-violent way.
