Last Sunday, friends of the festival – Lights Camera Africa!!! were hosted to a small intimate cocktail in anticipation of the official opening on 30 September, 2016.

The event took place at the Wheatbaker Hotel Ikoyi, Lagos. There was of course food, live music, laughter and mingling which was one of the reasons for the gathering.

“I want us to spend more time getting to know each other” said Ugoma Adegoke, director of the film festival. That night, invited guests watched a documentary, Lagos, on the host city of the film festival and Olive, a short film about chance and infidelity.

These and a lot more await you at the festival as it opens with the film ‘Green White Green’.
