My Top 5 Movies at the Real Time Film (RTF) Festival

Let me write it again for someone reading my blog for the first time, I LOVE film festivals. I love watching new movies before they come out to the public, I love networking and discussing new releases with fellow filmmakers, and I particularly enjoyed RTF2019 because my new film ‘Leading Lady’ screened and so it was good to hear filmmaker’s critique it.

These are my Top 5 films that screened at RTF

  1. RUN
Directed by Uche Chukwu

So many features sets this film apart from the regular Nollywood movie. Small situations can quickly escalate leading down paths unforeseen. All I can say is be ready to RUN.

2. THE COFFIN SALES MAN

Directed by Umoh Imoren

How do you advertise a business about death, to the living? When business starts to fail, a coffin salesman has to either sell his small business or increase his marketing to attract new customers. Kelechi Udegbe is brilliant in this movie, and I liked the relationship he has with his daughter who thinks she is a superhero.

3. LEADING LADY

Directed by Reuben Reng

An Actress recounts her rapid rise in the movie industry while struggling with the pressures of fame. This one is a cautionary tale told with the most beautiful picture. I should mention that I was nominated Best Actress for Leading Lady at The African Film Festival in Dallas. Texas. I am very proud of Leading Lady.

4. NIMBE

Directed by Tope Alake

The Story of Nimbe has to be told. The Family is the first learning place for a child. Parents can make or mar their children with their words or action. Good edutainment.

5. SKELEBE (ANIMATION)

by Quadron Studios

What do you do when you encounter a Street Rat with a big heart and lots of swag? 3 minutes of this animation got me hooked. Am looking forward to the full length feature.

There you have it. My Top 5 at RTF. If you attended RTF2019, please comment your best films that screened.

I hope you enjoy seeing this movies when they come to cinemas near you.
