Here’s The List Of Winners At The 2017 AFRIFF Globe Awards

The 2017 edition of the week-long Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) ended in a spectacular way on Saturday, November 4, with the presentation of the Globe Awards at the Eko Hotel Convention Center, Lagos.
Unlike in 2016, when Nigerian films dominated most of the awards – with Izu Ojukuw’s ’76 dominating – this year saw the love shared around a bit more evenly.

Senegal’s Oscar hopeful FelicitéMali’s Wulu and Zambia’s I Am Not a Witch were some of the biggest winners of the night.
It was a show of stars as Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Kate Henshaw, Ramsey Nouah, Kunle Afolayan, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha, Kunle Idowu, Olu Jacobs, Bolanle Austen-Peters, Ini Dima Okojie, Linda Ejiofor, Omoye Uzamere, Nonso Bassey, Fred Amata among others all walked the red carpet.
The hosts for the night were Lala Akindoju and Serge Noukoue, founder of Nollywood Week Paris.
There were over three thousand entries which produced a thousand five hundred selections, the festival, a series of screenings, panel discussions, trainings and sessions for school kids.
After series of screenings, the Jury finally came up with winners for the AFRIFF Globe Award.
