Bolanle Austen-Peters, the Producer of multiple award winning movie 93 DAYS and director of the block buster high grossing film, The Bling Lagosians, is happy to announce the selection of her new film Collision Course as the closing film of the African International Film Festival AFRIFF 2021.

In an announcement at a press conference by the festival organisers, Collision Course was selected as the festival closing film from the array of entries the festival received.

Festival closing films are typically the centre piece film of festivals and are important films that satisfy the festival critical screening and review criteria for it to deserve the festival closing night spotlight.

Directed by Bolanle Austen-Peters and produced by Joseph Umoibom and James Amuta, the movie, a heart-thumping story told in 24 hours that dives into the lives a law enforcement agent, a young man and some rogue element, features Chioma Akpotha, Daniel Etim Effiong, Kelechi Udegbe, Ade Laoye, Kenneth Okolie, Bimbo Manuel, Gregory Ojefua, Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan (BamBam), Kalu Ikeagwu, and Nobert Young.

No in its 10th year, AFRIFF is one of the foremost film festivals in Africa and a major player in the showcase of African film and filmmakers. The festival will be running from November 7 to November 13, at the Landmark Event Centre, with Collision Course closing the festival on November 12.
