RMD, other Nollywood stars appointed for 2017 Zuma film festival committee


Popular Nolly-wood actors, Richard Mofe Damijo, Patience Ozokwo are among other filmmakers selected to head zonal committees in preparations for the 2017 Biennial Zuma film festival, Dr Chidia Maduekwe, the Managing Director of National Film Corporation has said.

The NFC boss, who disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Jos, said the festival would hold from Dec. 1 to Dec, 15 with theme `Feast on Films.

“ We have set up committees in the various geopolitical zones of the country zones. Zonal Coordinators have also been appointed.

“ The Zuma Festival is designed to give impetus to increase expansive opportunities available in the global audiovisual market. The festival will continue to serve as a platform for Nigerian film practitioners to network with their counterparts from other parts of the world.

“This would facilitate co-production and financing opportunities, reward cinematic excellence, promote audiovisual services, cultural products and the huge export potentials of Nigerian films,” he said.

He said the festival would hold in Abuja and would also feature robust film master classes, workshops, NFC annual film lecture, film market and exhibition and awards night.

NAN reports that the Zuma Film Festival is a biannual event to promote the Nigerian Film Industry as a viable investment option for the Nigerian and International business communities.

  1. Jessi Nicole^Very cute and comfortable. I was a little surprised when I noticed there weren’t any pockets but that’s not a big deal. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the fact that I was gagging when I opened the package. It reeked like it had been soaked in vinegar. I washed it twice and let it air out for a few days before it went away.~4|Amazon Customer^Love the hoodie. It’s thinner than I thought it would be but that’s great cause I tend to wear hoodies in the heat of summer too. Also the sleeves are a little too short but that tends to happen to me when I buy long sleeves or jackets. Overall I love it cause it’s Castiel so yeah ??~3|VIKINGdale^Bought as b day gift for wife she LOVES it. Got her fast from china too~5|

  2. Tyler^I was alone&#44 miserable&#44 overweight & had poor social skills. Once the shirt arrived & I adorned it&#44 I knew my life was about to change for the better.I instantly lost 50lbs&#44 my rating on hotornot.com jumped to a 9.4&#44 my conversation skills are now on par with JFK himself & now when I swipe right on Tinder&#44 it’s always & I mean always&#44 a match. Heed this warning though…this shirt is far too powerful for any one being.So remember&#44 with great Laser Eyes Space Cat Shirt power&#44 comes great Laser Eyes Space Cat Shirt responsibility.~5|Amazon Customer^Not as advertised. The graphic is much smaller than shown on the page&#44 all of the colors are of extremely poor quality to the point where you can barely tell that it is in fact a cat. Its not a genuine screen print.Also shipped from China so I doubt returns are possible. Pretty disappointed overall~3|Amazon Customer^This is not the shirt advertised at all!!!! I want my money back right now.~3|Deborah^Great shirt. I got this as a fun way to fit into my physics group&#44 where cats are a running joke in the lab. Its noticeable enough without being annoying. People like it :)I ordered men’s med and normally fit between a women’s medium or large. Likely men’s small would have been fine too&#44 just tighter. It’s long&#44 so anyone taller than 5′-7″ will be happy.The graphics are fine. It’s on the thin side&#44 not a very heavy t-shirt. Made in Honduras. Slight chemical smell out of the package but it went away quickly.So far very satisfied&#44 would recommend.~5|Cliff W King^Ever since I was a teenage weirdo I’ve wanted a laser-shooting-space cat t-shirt. Now that I’m an grown adult weirdo I can buy one for myself without my dumb mom who always tells me what to do telling me no! She won’t let me live my life. She thinks I’m wasting my life and education for getting a degree in auctioneering.As a side note&#44 does anyone have an in in the auctioneering world? I’m looking to apprentice. My voice has been compared to a mix between Carol Channing and a peacock. Thank you in advance. I have a lot of debt.~5|K.K.^Worn this shirt a lot and it’s seen it’s share of washings. It fits slightly small in the shoulders so if your of medium or athletic build&#44 order a size up. Colors have held up without fading under warm water washings. There has been a little flaking of the graphics due to the dryer.As for the appropriate deployment of this shirt: I’ve worn it out drinking a lot. Worn it while binge-watching Breaking Bad&#44 Trailer Park Boys&#44 and Downton Abbey (not all in the same day.) Wore it several times to Wal-Mart to buy plastic-wrap. Wore it once to church but then realized I don’t attend Mass and what I thought was church was actually a toll-booth. Wore it while getting a haircut and also wore it while eating lobster.Deducted one star because my girlfriend will not have “relations” with me while I’m wearing it.Respectfully&#44NH Seacoast~4|LJ^Ordered the XL and when I got it it looked more like a XXL&#44 so washed it in hot water and dried it on high heat to shrink it to a XL.~4|Amazon Customer^My kids gave this to my husband last Christmas and the delight they got out of giving it to him was worth the purchase alone. My husband is super hard to shop for so awhile ago the kids and I began a tradition of giving him ridiculous t-shirts rather than spending a bunch of time and effort on finding gifts he would likely not even want. My son (9) picked this one out and couldn’t wait for his dad to open it. He even put it in a special spot under the tree so that&#44 when it came time to open the presents&#44 he would be able to find it quickly to make sure it was the first package my husband opened. My son tried to keep a straight face when my husband started to open it but by the time all the wrapping paper was off my son was laughing so hard he had tears in his eyes. It’s now 7 months later and he still cracks up every time my husband puts it on.Since we got this mostly as a gag gift I really didn’t have any expectations but the t-shirt is actually very high quality. The fit is pretty good&#44 it’s really soft and comfy and it hasn’t started fading or peeling. My husband prefers his t-shirts to be pretty loose. He is 6’3″ and 215 lbs and the xxl works nicely for him.~5|Labrador^I absolutely love the print of this shirt. The cotton that it’s made of is soft and pleasant. And&#44 frankly&#44 what’s not to like about a shirt with a cat that shoots laser beams out of it’s eyes and farts rainbows? Well&#44 other that it shrunk a bit in the wash&#44 nothing. Frankly&#44 the shrinkage was relatively small so it still technically fits me. It’s just short enough now that it doesn’t look good with my jeans any more&#44 which is a total bummer. I wish I had seen a flag to be more careful and hand wash only or something like that!On the other hand all colors – of the print and the shirt – are holding up well and it’s pretty sweet. I’m just having a hard time really loving it because this should have been pre-shrunk cotton or there should have been a warning of some kind..~3|DUSTIN L DODSON^I was skeptical but now i’m a believer! My life was insignificant before i wore this glorious symbol of awesome-sauce. But now&#44 i walk tall and proud&#44 knowing nothing can slow me down. People stare with envy&#44 i just shrug it off and go about my biznazzz.~5|

  3. Crabbymom^Looks great! This product does run small though. I purchased it for my 11-year-old who is on the small side to start with..so you know if a men’s small fits HIM well then purchasers would do well to ordert at least one size (maybe two!) larger than you would normally wear.~5|Abracadabzbra^Great quality. The image is clear and very cool. Does seem to fit a little small. I ordered my husband a large&#44 he typically wears a medium and the large fit like a medium. So I’d advise going up a size.~5|Emily S.^I must have received a bad item since my shirt looks nothing like the pictures posted by the seller or the ones in the reviews. It’s extremely faded and has very little color and a very strong vinegar odor. It was a gift for my boyfriend and when he opened it in my car the smell lingered for several days. I contacted the seller the same day I received the item&#44 and am posting a review now–a week later–and have heard nothing back. Extremely disappointed.~3|Mariam Chagelishvili^I love this soooo much. I’m 45 kilos&#44 154 cm and small fits perfectly ^_^~5|Amazon Customer^Must have for any Fallout fan. Bought it about a year ago. I advise consumers to buy a size larger than they usually wear. I am 6’5 225lbs&#44 and ordered an XL&#44 which will fit me in almost everything. However this shirt shrank quite a bit after first wash. Overall though&#44 love the shirt. nice fabric as well. Hope this helps.~4|taptrap12^I ordered this tee for my son&#44 but read the product description wrong & thought it was boy’s sizes. The tee in itself is stellar&#44 well-made&#44 unfortunately it’s adult sized & not youth so my son can’t wear it!~5|Amazon Customer^The fabric used in this item was very soft and washed well. However&#44 it did run quite a bit small. I bought it for my fourteen year old nephew in a size xl to give him plenty of time with it&#44 but it was already JUST the right size.~3|Sean M.^Take everybody else’s advice just like I did…..buy this shirt 1 size bigger than you normally buy. I usually fit in large with no problem&#44 but bought the XL of this one. It fit perfectly. Large definitely would’ve been too small. Great shirt. Very comfortable.~5|Chanda^Great item for any Fallout fan! The shirt is a better material than I expected. I was excited when I found a very similar item cheaper at a local game store but quickly realized the quality of this one is much better and opted to pay the extra few bucks. Fun&#44 comfy shirt!~5|JB^Bought as a gift for an avid fallout 4 fan&#44 and it was a real hit.The t-shirt itself is well sewn and is of medium thickness. The logo on the front is the kind that you shouldn’t iron over (except on the reverse)&#44 and holds its colours well when washed. The shirt didn’t shrink in the wash nor lose its color&#44 and fits well.Originally ordered a medium but measured up so small I sent it back&#44 got a refund&#44 and reordered in large.Arrived quickly&#44 well packaged and good value for money :)~5|

  4. Amazon Customer^Sweatshirt came much earlier than the estimated delivery date &#44 also fits as expected and is super soft on the inside this is a xmas gift for my fiance who loves colorado gear and he is really going to love this sweatshirt!~5|Bailey^Bought this for my military boyfriend to remind him of his hometown while he’s stationed in California! He loves it&#44 and gets compliments on it all the time!~5|z^The logo looks horrible in person looks cheap~4|Katherine Taylor^The worst~3|

  5. S. Milner^I needed to dress up an old hat. Bought this along with a band of flowers and&#44 together&#44 they worked perfectly and truly improved hat’s appearance.~5|cjm^I WAS NOT HAPPY WHEN I SAW IT. It worked better than my first impression. No problem at all. Thank you~5|JF^Junk&#44 Doesn’t fit. looks terrible.~3|vonbearto^Exactly what I needed for Panama hat&#44 looks great.~5|Zachary St.John Kopp^too big~3|chris^went great with my cowboy hat~4|cindi wilson^does not work~3|bradybunch^It’s almost near impossible to find a hat to fit my husbands head. We found theses hats and decided why not take a chance and order the hats. I figured they were not going to fit. Well boy was I wrong&#44 the hats fit my husbands head and he likes the hats. I ordered the a hat in khaki and in blue. The hat has an adjustable strap to accommodate XL to 3XL. The cotton hats are good quality. We are very satisfied with the hats. Now he has hats to wear to the beach&#44 golfing&#44 by the pool and all around.~5|Amazon Customer^I received the hat in a timely manner and the color was true to the picture. However&#44 the hat is poorly made and completely crooked. The bill is extremely long and the fold where the bill meets the hat is not centered. It appears like the bill is longer on one side. The hat is definitely for super big heads. I have a big head and had to wear this hat on at its’ tightest. I will only wear it in the backyard and not out. Definitely looks too awkward.~4|Daryl^My husband has a BIG ASS HEAD&#44 his words not mine&#44 and this hat fits-really fits and does not look like an adult in a childs hat. Happy to find a hat that does not cost a small fortune and fits.~5|DavisS^Quality cap. Fits well and I have a 8.75″ head~5|Fair Play^My 1st cap that was sized for XXL head like mine! But the photo shows a medium pale green. Instead&#44 it is a light&#44 light faded green. Would have given 5 Stars but instead give 1 Star because of my disappointment on the color.~3|Randy Martin^good quality but larger than I expected~4|NANCY ZEPPA^Bought this in a pinch as we were on vacation & hubby forgot to pack a hat. He has a very large head. This is the first hat that is actually large on him. Worked for us.~3|Susan^My husband who wears it said it’s a little too big. I can see that it is a little too big also but he is okay with it and wants to keep it.~4|Jason in Florida^3d hat purchased…love these hats as they don’t squeeze my head! Last over a year with weekly washing before the brim frayed~5|Charles Revelle^Where anyone with a big head or I mean lots of Brain Mass should shop for caps. Well made products.~5|Craig R.^Not a bad hat for the price. It’s definitely Brown. It looks somewhat black in the picture. I have a large head and it adjusts to fit me just fine.~4|Got it here.^I love the fact that this hat looks like it’s been through hell but it’s new. There is absolutely no break in time and looked like a hat I had worn for years out of the package. If you have ever gone through the pain and time to get a hat to look good on your head then you know the relief you feel when you find one that’s ready to go. This hat is perfectly ready to go on from the start and looks fantastic.~5|Z-Kman81^Quality is great for the price (I don’t see anything different than a $20 hat from a department store). Hhaven’t had any stitching coming undone after wearing for a few weeks and no blemishes when I initially received the item.Love the white stitching contrasts on this hat. It was just as expected.~5|Marcus^Truly a low profile hat and it fits perfectly. I have a smaller head and this looks good on me. These kinds of hats are hard to find so if you have a smaller head like me and have a hard time finding something that doesn’t look stupid when you put it on this is a good choice.~5|Faisal Hanif^Size just fits perfectly&#44 not sure why people have commented about size being too short when I myself have larger head than others and it fits just fine. Only issue is&#44 the distressed signs are right at the edges so it bugs you when you can see it all the times when you are wearing it.~4|Amazon Customer^It was comfortable all together&#44 love the way it looks. However it didn’t hold up well. Stitching came undone on the brim after a week of causal wearing.~3|Rebecca Gauna^Good working hat~4|T. Tam^the color is a bit different from the image – it has a bit more contrast. the hat seems bit small (around the dome).~3|carson^Worked great.~5|Christan Anderson^I love the feel&#44 the look&#44 and the fit. I look stupid in most hats&#44 but this hat actually looks good on me.~5|Tone^this hat got me so many girlfriends~5|Joe B^Love these.~5|Clark Elvin Reyes^The ONLY thing that bothered me about this hat was that the bill was a bit large but a little bending and adjusting made it work. The material it is made of feels great and looks very stylish. I love this hat so much I’m considering buying a few more in a different color. I highly recommend purchasing this product!~5|Matthew Nguyen^This hat is decent for the price. It is very basic&#44 olive and seems to be made of pretty solid material. The bill is a little long and I’d recommend this hat for those of you with larger heads. Cool Hat~4|Amazon Customer^My bought this for a gift for my dad. He’s a bushcrafter and he wanted a hat for his patches. I figured this would be great&#44 since it would also be some what water resistant. He loves it!~5|Amazon Customer^good product..~4|Amy L. Burr^My fiancee loves the hat&#44 and that means a lot because he is quite p picky. Would recommend.~5|T.Flanagan^Looks class&#44 fits really nice and looks super clean even after 2 months &#44 it seems to hold up against the rain also.~5|CWSmith^good for price&#44 a little large~4|

  6. Kylie Lee^This is the worst shirt I’ve gotten… First&#44 it says it’s cotton and mine is not (unless swimwear material is the new cotton). Second&#44 the shirt looks cheaply made and there’s no tag or anything in the shirt. Thirdly&#44 to tie in with the second statement&#44 you can see where the material bunches up and was cut. Fourth&#44 it took FOREVER to get here (more than 2 weeks). Fifth&#44 I took a couple of reviewers advice and went up a size for my two year old&#44 and I’m pretty sure this wouldn’t fit my three-year-old niece!~3|Jared^My little boy loves bubble guppies and was so excited to get this shirt. When we first got it&#44 he wanted to wear it every day. So that being said&#44 this shirt has withstood a lot of wearings and washings&#44 and it’s still in great shape. It’s possible the shirt has faded a little&#44 but it was a faded blue to begin with so it’s not very noticeable. I bought a 4t for my 35lb 3 year old and it fits perfectly. It’s a little roomy&#44 but plenty of room for him to be active.~5|Terrence Aybar^My kid loves this shirt which isn’t really much of a surprise seeing as he’s practically president of the Bubble Guppies fan club. The shirt fits well&#44 is soft to the touch and has a cute picture of several of the show’s main characters on the front. If your child is a Bubble Guppies fan&#44 chances are they’ll appreciate this t-shirt.~5|caralin^My 2-year old nephew adores this shirt as he is wild for Bubble Guppies!~5|Michael Tonderum^I would highly recommend this product. My 4 year old loves it. The colors are great and haven’t faded after washing. It seems to fit a little small so I would buy the next size bigger. The only problem is my son want to wear it every day!~5|Brenda^????~5|noelleb^The shirt fits great and the material is a good quality. My 2 year old just loves bubble guppies&#44 and was so excited to see this shirt! It also did not shrink when washed and dried&#44 and the color stayed vibrant.~5|BowserJager^Overpriced and not the best quality. The shirt looked faded and worn even before I washed it. Found bubble guppies shirts at a local store for half the price and much better quality. Shop around!~3|T-J^Very cute shirt for a 2 year old who loves Bubble Guppies!~5|Nicole Anderson^My little guy is a big fan of the Bubble Guppies! I was nice to finally find something geared toward little boys with all the girl Bubble Guppy items! This shirt fits true to size and I would recommend it to anyone with a little boy that loves Bubble Guppies.~5|

  7. El Guapo^I cannot understand all the good reviews. The “XL” I received is sized for a Chihuahua. Quality is terrible.~3|Jeremy^Such an iconic album and shirt. Love it! Super soft&#44 a great print on a heavy-weight Tultex shirt. Impact does some great printing and Poster Revolution is one of the best for Punk & Rock shirts. Have been a loyal customer for years and have many shirts and posters from them. Top notch! Cheers!~5|Amazon Customer^I expected it to be a little small so I went with the XL&#44 so it was what I expected.~4|Silicon Valley Reader^Nice shirt&#44 I’m happy with it. The shirt is thin&#44 but not too thin. Normally&#44 I find a large T-shirt to be too large&#44 and a medium to be tight. This shirt&#44 in large&#44 fits me well.The lettering is vibrant&#44 and the photo image is just as you would expect. Everything has stood up to 3-4 washings without fading or excessive shrinkage.~4|missemmajane^This shirt shrunk the first time I washed it. I can’t wear it&#44 because it shrunk so much I would have to give it to my toddler to wear. Total waste of money. Next time I’ll just splurge and buy the real deal. Disappointing.~3|Thom Sousa^Great shirt of an iconic band!~5|Mike K.&#44^Shirt was delayed getting here but worth the wait&#44 shirt is exactly as described&#44 plus it is my favorite clash album&#44 so I am loving it!~5|R. Andre^Husband loves the heavier weight t-shirts. He gets lots of comments of “nice shirt” when he wears this around.Even a hip record store clerk gave him a slight nod and said “Nice shirt&#44 man”. I think it made his day&#44 LOL~5|Gary L. Brown^Art work and size gets A+ (even though I haven’t washed it yet). I would give this shirt 5 stars&#44 except that the material is a little thin and I wonder if it will hold up over time. The lighter weight material may be why the shirt is priced out less expensive than almost all others. Overall&#44 I recommend.~4|Kara Downs^I bought this shirt for my son as a Christmas present and he loved it&#44 thanks so much!~5|

  8. Amazon Customer^I’m from China and I thought small size should work but it turned out… to be somewhat small… yeah. just like the comment said… But it also served to outline my muscles&#44 so… I’ll pass. Good stuff.~5|claudia pardini^fits nicely! did not shrink when washed and dried. Very pleased with seller too~5|Amazon Customer^Loved this came perfectly on time.~5|Amazon Customer^Perfect fit~5|Amazon Customer^Awesome shirt~5|

  9. Shaun @amazonian^Loved my first purchase so much I bought another one. Unfortunately&#44 the second tee I received was nothing like the original. Extremely poor quality. Different material&#44 print&#44 and fit. Would have bought the original one over and over and over if they could have been consistent with the quality.~4|Vanessa Waters^DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMAPNY. Cheap and terrible products they are selling. The Journey shirt I bought was suppose to have Journey written across the top. Instead it had a ton of missing vinyl the word Journey was not remotely on it.~3|Dave^Very soft t-shirt. Fits well and who doesn’t love Journey.~4|georgia mom^son loved the shirt~5|s.reyna^This was too small! It’s cut small warning otherwise it looked great~4|bababooey^Totally disappointed. Thought I was ordering a cotton blend t-shirt &#44 what I got was a silky poorly printed knockoff from China that you can’t even read.~3|

  10. Fabulous Jen^My DAUGHTER loves this shirt. My only complaint is that the shirt should not be marketed by gender. Both boys and girls love Paw Patrol. Chase is my daughters favorite character on the show. This shirt should be labeled as a KIDS shirt not by gender. smh~5|Katniss05^This shirt is so cute! It’s actually cuter than pictured&#44 because the colors in the picture look more muted than they look in person. Great little shirt – well made and true-to-size!~5|justanothercustomer^My son loves this shirt! He wants to wear it every single day and pitches a fit when I tell him it needs to be washed. He is 4 so I ordered the 4T and it fits perfectly. Didn’t even shrink when I washed/dried it. Will definitely get my moneys worth!~5|T. Nelson^Print quality is so bad I decided not to give these as gifts. Tried to contact seller but they’re no longer on the “Amazon platform” for communications. By the time I found this out I missed the opportunity to utilize the A-Z guarantee. I’m not happy.~3|Amazon Customer^My son wanted a shirt with Paw Patrol ‘s photo&#44 so i got him this. He got excited when he saw it&#44 contrary to me. Poor Paw Patrol photo quality&#44 that explains the price. Plus&#44 it’s wide.~4|Amazon Customer^Print and shirt Material quality not good.~3|Barbara^This shirt runs extremely small. My son loves the characters&#44 so it’ll do&#44 but beware of the sizing. 2T is more like 18 months.~3|Susan M.^Nice&#44 bright blue and attractive design. My 4 year old grandson likes this very much as he’s a big fan of Paw Patrol. Lots of room to grow.~5|WorkingMom^My son loves Paw Patrol&#44 so he loved this shirt. My only suggestion would be to wash in cold and hang dry. The picture on the shirt will start to wear away very quickly if you don’t.~3|Jessa T^My son adores this shirt! It is everything he wants and the orange color looks adorable on him. The graphic on the shirt is cracking and coming off in places. It is still one of his favorites!~4|

  11. Erin M.^The “small 6-8” was the same size as the Medium 8-10 of a normal shirt.~3|Christina^The shirt is a 6/8 my son is a 6 but I’ve purchased him other shirts that are 6/8. This one seemed like it ran a little larger than normal. Other than that it’s a nice shirt&#44 thick material&#44 and quick shipping.~4|Tess^My 4th grader wore this to his first school dance party. Perfect. Good quality and fit was just right.~5|Theresa319^Very cute~5|Holly S.^This shirt was perfect for my little man age 3 1/2. He wanted to be Dracula for Halloween and this was a simple easy way to dress him up. The shirt fit well and washed well. With a little face paint and a cape he was a pretty spoooooky Dracula indeed.~5|Amazon Customer^My son wanted to wear a tux to his 5th grade graduation. I wasn’t going to shell out money for that and this was the next best thing! All his friends loved it and thought it was hilarious!~5|Lisa Koehler^Worked out perfect for my son for a school project. Fit as expected.~5|Willow Daybreak^fits perfectly. Looks great in professional photo! So surprised our 7 yr old loves it. We just got it for moms day pictures but he wants to wear it. So we’ll get our $$ worth.~5|Fiona Warder^Great quality T-Shirt&#44 fun and my son loves it&#44 perfect fit. Fast delivery and also tracking information. Would definitely buy again from this seller !!!!! 5 stars on everything~5|K. Murphy^Ordered X large&#44 more like a medium. Not enough time to get it corrected… :(~4|
