Hey Guys, Guess what? Homevida 2017 Short Script Competition is almost here! !! !!! For those who don’t know, the Homevida Short Script Competition is aimed at providing incentives for young script writers to produce scripts that promote positive messaging. Last year, our winners went home…
On Friday December 4, 2015 the 6th edition of the Nigeria Integrity Film Awards took place at Victoria Crown Plaza Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos. This year, HomeVida in partnership with the School of Media and Communications, Pan Atlantic University launched the Creative Film Project. The Creative Film Project is an initiative of the School of Media and Communication and HomeVida to provide young and upcoming scriptwriters with an online database to store their scripts. It also includes training and professional support for scriptwriters to help them convert their scripts into films. The primary objective of the Creative Film Project is therefore to bridge the gap between talented scriptwriters and the film industry.

Welcome to the HomeVida blog!!!
HomeVida is one of the two programs run by Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC) and our focus is to provide incentives to produce movies that portray integrity values. We intend to reach out and spread the message of integrity through film because it cuts across all ages and sectors of the country. We have been organising the Nigerian Integrity Film Awards for the past 4 years and it has been a huge success. We decided to start up a blog to have a wider reach and also interact with members of the community directly to know what they think about the movies we (as Nigerians) produce and what they portray. We will be bringing to you film reviews, news on film festivals, nollywood and hollywood gossip *wink*, trailers of movies, short films and everything movies!!!!
Hope you all are as excited as we are!!!
So sit back, relax and enjoy because HomeVida is here to keep you informed and entertained…
