Nigerian Filmmakers Encouraged to Submit Entries for Oscars' International Feature Film Category
The Nigerian Official Selection Committee (NOSC) for the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is calling on Nigerian filmmakers to submit their feature films for consideration in the International Feature Film (IFF) category of the 96th Oscars. The NOSC, headed by Stephanie Linus, will choose one film as Nigeria's official entry for the prestigious award. Submissions can be made from August 28, 2023, until September 15, 2023, via the NOSC website.

The Nigerian Official Selection Committee (NOSC) for the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has made a call to Nigerian filmmakers, encouraging them to submit their feature films for consideration in the International Feature Film (IFF) category of the 96th Oscars. This is in line with their mission to promote Nigerian movies on an international platform.

The NOSC, which is officially recognized by the Academy, will choose one film to represent Nigeria in the IFF category. The International Feature Film award is presented annually by the Academy to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains 50 percent or more dialogue in languages other than English.

The submission portal will be open for entries from Monday, August 28, 2023, to September 15, 2023, on the official NOSC website. Nigerian filmmakers are urged to carefully review the criteria set by the Academy, including accurate English language subtitles, shooting formats, and theatrical releases, in order to ensure their submissions meet the required standards.

Stephanie Linus, the newly appointed chairperson of the NOSC, expressed her excitement about taking on this role and the opportunity it presents to honor exceptional Nigerian storytellers and talents on a global stage. In her statement, Linus said, "I am honored 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. We now have a unique opportunity to honor 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."

The 96th Oscars ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 10, 2024. The event will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles, California, and will be viewed in over 200 territories worldwide. The submission of Nigerian films to the IFF category of the Oscars presents an incredible chance for Nigerian filmmakers to showcase their creativity, talent, and unique cultural perspectives to a global audience.
