Hello guys, Today we bring you one of our 2016 Short Films – Beautiful Mistake’. Written by Jennifer Agunloye, it is the story about a young girl who goes through a lot to achieve her dreams. Beautiful Mistake won the Award for the HomeVida 2016 short script…
On Saturday the 10th of December 2016, the 7th edition of Nigeria Integrity Film Awards took place at Oriental Hotel Victoria Island Lagos. It was a night of fun and excitement as the audience were treated to electrifying performances by Waje and Timi Dakolo.
The event kicked off with a cocktail at 6pm presenting networking opportunities among the guests present. Some of the guests include the Director General, National Film and Videos Censors Board (NFVCB), Patricia Bala and United States Government Representative, Peter Hansen.

This year, in the short period given to submit entries, we received a total of 58 scripts for the Transparency, Accountability and Good Governance (TAGG) category sponsored by USAID and 30 scripts for the Digital Economy category supported by Google.
The process was intense and fun at the same time and extremely engaging.
The jury was joined by Chief of Party for USAID SACE, Mr. Charles Abani and top Nollywood actor and veteran (if I must say) Ramsey Nouah, also dropped by.
