Since its inception in 2010, AFRIFF has grown to become one of the biggest film festivals in Africa, providing spotlight for African movies and free training and talent development opportunities for young people and aspiring filmmakers, but Chioma Ude, the festival’s founder, has said she cannot be a part of it anymore.
In an interview with Accelerate TV, the entertainment entrepreneur disclosed that she was getting left out of major decisions in the festival and had little to no control of what went on anymore, hence her decision to leave.
“What you should look out for in AFRIFF is sad, to me it’s very sad because I’m losing grip of the festival. It’s getting bigger than me and it really showed this year.
