Lionheart, a film by Genevieve Nnaji was announced yesterday by the Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC) as the country’s submission in the International Feature Film Category of the 2020 edition of Oscars Awards.
The 12-man NOSC team which has some notable stakeholders of international repute as its members, selected “Lionheart” for its considerable shots at the Oscars rules.
NOSC Chairman, Chineze Anyaene, while commenting on the entries received this year, said a significant improvement was witnessed this year.
“While we cannot say that what we have are the best that Nigeria is capable of producing, it is heart-lifting to know that, from the strength of the entries received this year, we are truly ready for the Oscars. Filmmakers are gradually taking the Oscar rules into consideration, and I have no doubt that it is going to be more competitive, going forward,” he said.
