Highly-anticipated Nigerian movie, ‘Fifty’ directed by Biyi Bandele and Executively Produced by EbonyLife TV CEO Mo Abudu has been shortlisted under the ‘Love Category’ at the 2015 London Film Festival which was unveiled yesterday by the British Film Institute (BFI).

Fifty will have its Festival premiere on Saturday, 17th October 2015, at the Vue 7 Cinema, London, and a special grand Nigeria premiere on the 13th of December 2015 at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Set in Lagos, Fifty stars Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson, Omoni Oboli and NseIkpe-Etim. It celebrates the pulse and energy of this fast developing metropolis and explores the diversities and complexities of its colourful people through the lenses of its women.
