Jude Idada’s Kofa to premiere at AFRIFF


Filmmaker and Nigeria Prize for Literature winner, Jude Idada, is set to premiere his feature film, Kofa at the 11th edition of Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) holding at Landmark Events Centre, Oniru, Lagos from November 6-11, 2022.Kofa is a psychological thriller about eight people who wake up in their underwear to find themselves locked in a room. All they remember are their names. As an armed man comes in to pick them out, one after the other, they struggle to remember who they are, where they are and why they are there in order to marshal out an escape plan.Idada shed more lights on the film, “Kofa is a cinematic tour de force. The word Kofa means door in Hausa, thus the film is a metaphor of the closed doors we repeatedly encounter in our lives, and the length we go to open them even when the odds are stacked against us. It uses semi nudity, gun violence, amnesia, entrapment, suspicion, scheming, death, and a racing clock that races to a shocking twist and an explosive climax.”Kofa parades star-studded cast of Daniel Etim Effiong, Kate Henshaw, Ijeoma Grace Agu, Beverly Naya, Zainab Balogun, Enyinna Nwigwe, Shawn Faqua, Charles Etubiebi, Gina Castel, Udoka Oyeka, Bucci Franklin, Lucy Ameh, Carol King, Afeez Oyetoro, Achalugo Chioma Ilozumba, Paul Utomi, Femi Olayiwole, Folu Ogunkoya, Kiki Omelli, Wale Ojo, Eucharia Okoye, and Kola ‘Aderupoko’ Olaiya.A Thinking Man Media production in association with Creoternity Films and C-Blunt Films, Kofa was written, directed and produced by Jude Idada alongside a production team of Chibuzo Okoye and Femi Ogunsanwo. It was cinematographed by Kagho Idhebor, edited by Kazeem Idris; coloured by Ola’Kazeem Agboola, with a riveting score composition by Ava Momoh, and sound mix and design by George Flores. The film luminary, Steve Sodiya was the production consultant alongside an award-winning crew.
