Kunle Afolayan Breaks Into Japan film festival



Award-winning actor and movie director, Kunle Afolayan, is making yet another groundbreaking entry into the Asian movie market as he takes his recent works, Figurine and Phone Swap, to Tokyo, Japan.

This step into Tokyo is on the invitation of Cinema Africa, a non-profit organisation established in 2006 to develop understanding and appreciation of Africa in Japan through African films made by African filmmakers or producers.

The film festival billed to take place between May 18 and 23 would screen Phone Swap May 17 and Figurine May 18 at the Auditorium Shibuya, Tokyo. Also, there is an indication that the award winning filmmaker will be hosted to a dinner by the Nigerian High Commission in Tokyo on the day the festival opens. Afolayan describes the development as very inspiring.
