The Nigeria Official Selection Committee (NOSC) has extended an invitation to filmmakers to submit their feature films for the 2024 Oscars.
The 96th Oscars will take place on March 10, 2024, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, United States.
In a statement on Monday, the committee said it will be picking a film as the country’s official submission for the International Feature Film (IFF) category.
The statement added that the portal for submissions is open from August 28, 2023 to September 15, 2023.
NOSC said the award organisers require that films submitted must meet other criteria, including accurate, legible English language subtitles, shooting formats, and theatrical releases – details of which are available on its website.
While speaking on her appointment, Stephanie Linus, chairperson of NOSC, said she looks forward to collaborating with her fellow committee members to showcase Nigerian filmmakers on the global stage.
“I am honoured to take on the esteemed role of NOSC Chairperson for the Oscar Awards. I look forward to working closely with my committee members on our shared vision of promoting African filmmakers on a global platform,” she said
“We now have a unique opportunity to honour the exceptional storytellers and talents whose works have entertained and connected us in many ways. I hope the decisions we make in the days ahead will inspire the next generation of filmmakers.”
