As the Nigerian movie industry continues to make giant strides both at home and abroad, more stakeholders are looking into avenues to encourage and engage the industry players.

Celebrating its 90th year in cinema globally, the yearly Moët & Chandon Film Gala returns for its second edition in Lagos and will host the industry’s finest stars to a night of arts, glamour and exquisite dining. This edition is aimed at celebrating the ever-blooming film industry in Nigeria.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Iconic’ and it pays homage to the top moments from the last decade, game changers and their devotion to the craft. The crème de la crème of the film and movie industry will converge for a night that is truly an appreciation and celebration of the industry.

Speaking with The Guardian, Elizabeth Oputa, Manager of Champagnes and Wines Portfolio said, “over the years, we have enjoyed a special relationship with the big screen and we are so thrilled that we are able to further this relationship with the second year of this first-of-its-kind film event in Nigeria. Being the exclusive champagne of celebration for illustrious film award ceremonies all over the world such as the Academy Awards and Golden Globes places us in good stead to execute this film gala and celebrate the Nigerian film industry in grand style.”

This year, Silverbird Distribution joins the platform as content collaborators. The CEO of Silverbird Distribution, Jared Murray-Bruce, expressed his delight at the collaboration that has the brand working hand in hand with Nigeria’s foremost content distribution company in and from West Africa to honour the hard work and dedication of all industry stakeholders to the craft of filmmaking as well as their commitment to raising the bar of Nigerian entertainment to global standards.
