Tickets for the world premiere of EbonyLife Films’ highly anticipated feature Fifty, sold out in 4 days.
Tickets for the opening screening at the Vue 7 Cinema, Leicester Square on Saturday 17th October and the additional screening at the Ritzy Cinema, South London on Sunday 18th October are sold out. All four lead actresses are expected to attend both screenings.
Speaking about the popularity of the event, Executive Producer Mo Abudu said: “This is a moment for African Storytelling. This is the objective for EbonyLife Films and we are overwhelmed by the reception for the film thus far.”
The film stars Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim. The production is Mo Abudu’s quest to showcase African women coming of age, loaded with increasingly similar aspirations and dilemmas faced by their contemporaries everywhere, while yet navigating unresolved traditions and obligations.
Director Biyi Bandele and Producer Tope Oshin-Ogun are expected to join the cast on the BFI Red Carpet. Fifty will get a special grand Nigerian premiere this Christmas on the 13th of December 2015 at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos and go on nationwide release on the 18th of December, 2015.
