On Monday, September 20, 2021, the Nigerian Oscars committee announced the confirmation of entries for the 94th Academy Awards via their social media accounts.
“The Nigeria Official Selection Committee (NOSC) for the Academy Awards in International Feature Film (IFF) submissions, has reopened the submission portal for the 94th Academy Awards from Monday, September 20th, to Monday, October 4th, 2021,” the statement read. The NOSC has established itself as a game changer after successfully submitting two submissions in the International Feature Film category.
The committee, commonly known as the Oscar selection committee, submitted Nigeria’s first-ever Oscar submission, ‘Lionheart,’ in 2019, and unanimously voted Desmond Obviagele’s ‘The Milkmaid,’ for Academy consideration in 2020.
“We were able to make our first-ever entry submission to the Oscars for the International Feature Film Awards category as a country, and the awareness this has brought to the industry as a whole has been amazing. It has opened the industry to other markets, and we hope to see partnerships with other industries soon,” said NOSC chairperson, filmmaker Chineze Anyaene.
The members of this year’s committee are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Filmmakers are expected to submit their films in accordance with NOSC criteria, as in previous years.
