Nosa Igbinedion is a British-Nigerian filmmaker whose work is centred in African
Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Whether it's solar robots policing the streets of Lagos in 2050 or African deities manifesting on gritty south london housing estates, his work is a collision of grounded realism with stylized fantasy. He is dedicated to creating speculative fiction that is rooted in african culture, mythology and point of view which does not place the western gaze at the centre.
Nosa was recently commissioned by the BBC and BFI to write, and direct 'Binge Watching' a social realist sci-fi short that was broadcast on BBC 4 and I player.
His shorts have won multiple awards and played in notable film festivals around the world (London short film festival, AFRIFF, Raindance among others) and in 2015 he was awarded the 'Rising Talent' Screen Nation award.
As a pioneer of the new Africanfuturism movement, he created the 1st African super-heroine universe, 'Rise of the Orisha'. The proof of concept film went viral, garnering over a million views online and was featured in international publications such as O Globo and BBC world-wide.
, Nosa is currently developing multiple feature film projects in the realms of Tech, Social Realism and SPirituality.
