The organizers of The Annual Film Mischief (TAFM) have announced the festival’s second edition expected to take place in 2023.

The festival’s second edition is themed #ShootTheCulture and will continue its quest to pull fans and creators of short films from all over Africa to Lagos, Nigeria. Like the maiden edition, #ShootTheCulture will also feature films from across the African continent.

Founder of The Annual Film Mischief, Chukwu Martin confirmed the festival’s new edition in a statement:

“In March 2022, we launched The Annual Film Mischief to shine the spotlight on filmmakers daring to tell stories with unique narratives and styles. The average African filmmaker comes from humble beginnings and though there will be limited resources, there will never be limits to creativity, hence our theme – ‘Less is More’. It was a call to action to reach beyond financial limitations and dig into the abundant well of creativity.”

Martin recalled the success of one of last year’s entry that went on to represent the industry on an international level:

“We had some successes to celebrate. ‘Yahoo+’, one of the films screened at TAFM ’22, went on to get nationwide theatrical distribution with moderate success at the Nigerian box office.”

Several other directors whose movies featured at the festivals last edition also went on to gain recognition at film festivals both home and abroad. Olabdode Izy’s The Samaritan got huge recognition at the Realtime International Film Festival and Cucko International Film Awards.

Other notable titles from TAFM’s maiden edition include Owen Olowu’s Songs of Ubong which bagged TAFM Grand Cheese Prize, Reflections Winner, and Best Screenplay, Chuko and Ari Esiri’s Eyimofe and Paul Utomi’s Country Hard.
