Speaking about this year's edition, Fidelis Duker said, “this year’s we had a masterclass in acting facilitated by Richard Mofe Damijo, Lancelot Imasuen, Segun Arinze and Francis Duru, where over 150 actors were trained in the basics of screen acting.

"We also collaborated with Canon UK and Middle East to train 60 young aspiring Nigerians in cinematography and Photography. Skills and knowledge were transferred, and I know the results will manifest in the coming years as most of them will be very successful entrepreneurs in the creative sector.”
