|The 1st Annual Film Gala, presented by Moët & Chandon and Filmhouse Cinemas, will be held on Saturday, the 26th of January 2019, coinciding with the global award seasons. Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Oscars and Filmhouse, the premium movie exhibition company in Nigeria, have aligned to showcase the creativity of the film industry.
The Film Gala will celebrate and honor the works of our game changers and ground breaking members of our ever-blooming film industry. It is set to be a night of arts, glamour and fine dining as it will feature the best of Nollywood and initiatives that have left strong imprints in our society. Most importantly, the theme of the night will reflect the continuity of support, promotion of opportunity and growth that the community has given and will finish off by giving back to the community.
Filmhouse Cinemas Limited is a dynamic film exhibition company that not only explores film culture but creates it here in Nigeria. Over the past few years, Filmhouse Cinemas has solidified its place as the foremost film authority in Nigeria and indeed, intends to expand that voice of authority by being fully committed to the development of the indigenous market as it is key to the growth of the Nigerian theatrical movie industry. Filmhouse Cinemas recognizes that indigenous filmmakers are changing contemporary cinema, producing an astonishing volume of content that continues to change the film game in this country. It is thus important and necessary that we have an initiative such as the Film Gala which gives them the platforms they deserve in order to better tell our stories and create space for us on the global stage.

Not only do they know how to create customized luxury experiences and indeed, moments, but they are also committed to supporting and providing visibility to the Arts along with worthy causes, events and outstanding contributions related to the Arts.
