Now in its eighth year, TINFF is the first African and Nigerian film festival to gain accreditation from Telefilm Canada and the Canadian Screen Awards (CSA), the audiovisual industry regulators and the Academy Cinema & Television in the country respectively. The move underscores the growing reach of the Nigerian film industry on the global stage.

In the previous year, the award celebrated achievements by Nigerian actors including Omotola Jalade Ekehinde, who won Best Actress for her role in Lockdown, Jide Oyegbile who took home the award for Best Actor in an African Film for his role in Damage Done, and Stella Damasus for Best Actress in an African Fim for her role in Victoria, among others

This year’s festival will be held from September 8 to 15 2024. The gala and the award night are scheduled for September 14 and 15, 2024 respectively.

The nominees this year includes Wale Ojo, Pete Edochie and Uzor Arukwe for Best Actor, and Tope Olowoniyan, Omowunmi Dada, Sharon Ooja-Nwoke for Best Actress. In the Best African Female Filmmaker category, Cordelia Emeh and Biodun Stephen were nominated for The Subterfuge, and Tana Egbo-Adelana and Ego Nworji for Tender Hedges. Doyinsola Ajayi has bagged four nominations for her films: Do or die, Maki and Angel in the Stone for Best Short African Drama, Best African Filmmaker and Best Musical Score and Director respectively.
