Adapted from iFeatures, a premier UK filmmaking programme driving the development of low-budget high-quality debut features and realising the talent of the next generation of filmmakers. Our aim is to produce the most outstanding, daring and distinctive storytellers in Lagos, by giving them the tools and the support to experiment, develop their voice, and create contemporary films that speak to a world audience. Lagos filmLAB is a partnership between the British Council, the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) and delivered by Creative England and Biola Alabi Media
Lagos filmLAB offers a unique opportunity to explore and realise your vision. Selected teams will take part in an intensive, exploratory Lab programme, which will include dedicated support, access to industry and networks, as well as mentoring and high-level training with established industry professionals. The programme will focus on a dedicated period of development for 12 projects and teams, with each receiving bespoke support as they work towards market engagement.#
Following the programme, the British Council and BAM (Biola Alabi Media Ltd.) have committed to ensuring that at least three of the projects progress to production.
