INVESTOR GUIDE

Nollywood is currently the second-largest film producer in the world in terms of number of movies.
The local industry employs about a million people and generates over US$7 billion for the economy. 

 

Its industry accounts for 1.4% of GDP according to IMF reports. 

 

But that's all old news. The new news is that the industry has never been in a better position than it is in right now and OAF is here to show it to you all. To learn more about Nollywood in 2021, its highest grossing films, biggest players, trends, successes and challenges click here

Executive studios like Ebony Life, SceneOne Productions, Anthill Studios, Golden Effect Pictures and Playnetwork Studios are a few  amongst many currently killing it. Armed with the finance and the network, these studios are pushing the boundaries of creativity with quality high budget films. It was no surprise when Netflix made its official entry into the scene in February of 2020. To watch a video highlights of the event, click here. 

 Amidst the boom, lie an army of independent filmmakers who also have to churn out movies quicker, faster and often times under less glamourous conditions. Countless stories die or waste away because the filmmakers are unable to secure the funding or the network needed for such projects.. Here is your chance to make their dreams come through. 

DISCLAIMER: Films are risky business and the possibility that you might loose all your money exist. Own A Film is NOT responsible for and cannot guarantee the success or failure of any film project. It is your responsibility to perform due diligence on any filmmaking team you wish to invest in. You should invest only what you can afford to lose. We encourage investors to fund film projects that they believe in. Do it because you believe in the team behind each film and not because you want to make money. Calculate investor risks  and returns accurately.

VIABILITY ASSESSMENT RATING VAR GUIDE

The safety of your investment is important to us. The OAF community reviews and offer recommendations by rating each submitted project on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being films with the most potential. The VAR Score sits next to the Investors Review  which is your chance as an investor to rate any project you invest in. Both scores should give you a fairly good idea of how well the film will do. Please note that having high a VAR and Investor Review score does not guarantee the success of a film. A film can still flop, meaning it fails to breakeven for a number of reasons.
