Genevieve Becomes TIFF Ambassador

Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has been unveiled as one of this year’s Toronto Film Festival Ambassadors.
This recognition came months after she made the list of Academy members. The star actress joined 819 other invitees alongside Nigerian director, Akin Omotoso on the exclusive list.
Genevieve will join other recognized filmmakers around the world for the festival which is to kick start from September 10 to 19, 2020.

According to Deadline, the ambassadors will engage with audiences via an interactive digital experience.

“In a time of disruption, professionals from around the world still look for occasions to come together, share innovative ideas, buy and sell content, and find creative ways to collectively forge ahead towards a safer, healthier, and inclusive future”, said Geoff Macnaughton, Senior Director of Industry & Theatrical, TIFF.

“This year, delegates can expect to find community, connection, inspiration, and talent — the foundation that will serve as the way forward”, he added.
