The The Ibadan Indie Film Awards(IFA) has been created to recognize and reward the excellence of young independent filmmakers living and working in Nigeria. Established in 2022, the IFA is an annual event, held every November in the ancient city of Ibadan, Nigeria.

Every year, "The Jury" will award the best independent filmmakers through a private screening. All the annual winners receive the prestigious "IFA"

Filmmakers can submit as many works to the categories as we're also about the filmmaker's portfolio. Films & filmmakers that don't necessarily win would be given honorable mentions. If an entry does not win it may be re-submitted in another year.

We also require an electronic press kit (synopsis and poster or screen grab) to post on our site.

An accurate Production Budget amount must be entered in your submission

By submitting your film you agree that you own the rights to it and are responsible for the content. By submitting you are granting IFA the right to post the name, synopsis and artwork on our sites.

Filmmakers are allowed to use the IFA Laurels on their winning or selected film ONLY. They can be used on posters as well as other related media.
