The 2019 edition of Lagos Comic Con ended on September 21st, after 3 days of activities at Alliance Française de Lagos – Mike Adenuga Centre.

Two French professionals from the animation sector took part in this annual meeting that gathers lovers of manga, comics, cosplay… They participated in several conferences dealing with distribution and production of content.

Christophe Guignement (artistic producer) was in Lagos for the development of an animated Franco-Nigerian series, while Olivier Catherin, Annecy animation film festival’s representative for Africa, was there to meet with Nigerian animation studios in the perspective of the 2020 edition of the Annecy festival, of which Africa will be the guest of honour.

2020 seems to be a promising year for the Nigerian animated cinema and its distribution abroad!
