Nigerian filmmaker and entrepreneur Chris Ihidero aims to train young Nigerian producers, writers and directors in story telling from October 27 to 29, 2015 in Lagos, Nigeria.

The project called ‘Chris Ihidero’s Story Story’, is being coordinated in partnership with the British Council.

The workshop will empower a class of 35 participants, following a rigorous selection process. Our idea is to prepare participants for opportunities that extend their enhanced skills by servicing the industry with better storytelling”, Ihidero said.

This is not a screenwriting workshop or script clinic, but a capacity development workshop for practicing creative professionals to improve on structural storytelling”, he stressed.
