CALL FOR ENTRIES: 2018 iREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival

8th IREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival, 22nd-25th March 2018.

The iREPRESENT (iREP) International Documentary Film Festival is committed to developing and promoting the practice of documentary filmmaking in Africa. Founded in Lagos Nigeria in 2010 by Femi Odugbemi, Makin Soyinka and Jahman Anikulapo the I-Represent international documentary film festival has made progress making a case for rebuilding a vibrant documentary cinema culture in Nigeria. Over the past 7years IREP has screened over 250 films from across the world partnering with other documentary film festivals such as the Dok.fest in Munich Germany and the WADF out of the University Missouri in St.Louis Missouri and the New York University's African Studies department. We have vigorously advocated documentary cinema as an important art form and as a powerful tool for empowering new voices and new perspectives on the issues of our political and cultural history and our development agenda within the framework of our ambitions for development, constitutional liberties, human rights, social justice and democracy. That is why iREP chose from inception to frame its intervention on the theme "Africa in self-conversation."
