Winners of the award are decided by the public and fans are encouraged to vote by registering at www.nationalfilmawards.org/voting. The awards ceremony takes place on 28 March.

This prestigious nomination is another indication of the international appeal of the film and how well it has been received by audiences across the globe. Of note are its successful cinema runs in Nigeria, the UK, East Africa, South Africa and Liberia.

The National Film Awards UK is an annual event organised by the National Film Academy to laud the accomplishments of established and independent filmmakers, actors, actresses, casting directors, production companies and crew who make up the motion picture industry.

Mo Abudu, CEO, EbonyLife Films, is ecstatic about the nomination and the global recognition. “It is humbling and exciting that The Wedding Party 2 has not only been embraced by viewers the world over, but has earned such international acclaim from a prestigious institute like the National Film Academy. The nomination is further proof that original content, made in Africa for the world, is viable and good enough for international commendation,” she said.

Moses Babatope, COO of FilmOne Distribution echoes Abudu’s sentiments and hopes the film bags the award. “Being nominated by the National Film Academy in the UK is satisfying enough. However, it would be mind-blowing and incredibly meaningful to win the award for ‘Best International Film’. We encourage viewers who enjoyed it to vote online and help us bring this award home,” he said.
