It’s another exciting time for Nollywood as another Nollywood film, Black Harvest, directed and written by James Amuta, has been selected to premiere at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival. This feat marks another appearance for Nollywood at the film festival after Biyi Bandele’s Elesin Oba, The King’s Horseman, and Jade Osiberu’s Gangs of Lagos had a grand premiere in 2022. 

While speaking about the premiere news with Shock NG, Amuta had this to say, “When you make a film, anywhere you are in the world, you make it with the intention of connecting with a universal audience, so you adopt creative methods and strategies for making your film accessible for consideration by international film stakeholders. So you start making your festival rounds and knocking on doors.”
