‘The Wedding Party’, a movie production of the Elfike Film Collective, premiered last night as part of the City to City programme of the Toronto International Film Festival 2016 (Tiff 2016). The sold-out movie premiere held at the historic Elgin Theatre, to a full house.
Written by Tosin Otudeko and directed by Kemi Adetiba, this fascinating romcom features a heavyweight cast, including veteran thespian, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Sola Sobowale, Alibaba, Iretiola Doyle, and upcoming actors, Banky W, Adesua Etomi, Somkele Iyamah amongst others.
The Wedding Party was introduced to a glad audience by a proud compatriot of Hollywood royalty, Mr. David Oyelowo; supported by Masai Ujiri, President of Toronto Raptors; both of whom expressed pride in the origin and demonstrated potential of story tellers from Nigeria.
The 41st Toronto International Film Festival runs from the 8th to 18th of September, 2016.
