The Nollywood Phenomenon

Nollywood is the second largest film industry in the world. It produces circa 2,500 movies annually, and is extremely popular with Africans at home and the Diaspora, African-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, and “African culture fans”.

Currently, Nollywood films significantly outsell Hollywood films in Nigeria and many countries in sub-Saharan Africa; they are available in even the most remote areas of the continent.

New forms of distribution include digital distribution pioneered by the African Movie Channel through its online high quality On-Demand services, and soon, via its Roku channel and iPad app.

African Movie Channel's 24-hour linear channel, AMC24, launched in May 2011, is available in more than 5 million homes across 14 countries. It is one of the most popular channels in Africa.

Nollywood movies are now regularly screened alongside mainstream movies in cinemas in Nigeria, Ghana, the UK and North America. Nollywood films are also receiving wider distribution as more and more Nigerian producers and directors are attending internationally acclaimed film festivals.
