The Film Rats Club

Founded in 2017 by the actor and director Martin Nwachukwu, The Film Rats Club is a community of circa 150 cinephiles across Nigeria. These are people who in good faith propagate the gospel of good cinema, and celebrate the filmmakers who make them. With our focus on African cinema, we execute our mission by contributing thought leadership (critiques, reviews, articles, thesis) through film screenings, classes, and interviews with/of industry personnel. The Annual Film Mischief is our main platform for showcasing filmmakers. Email: hello@filmratsclub.com.
