WELCOME TO NOLLYWOOD, 2007 The Nigerian film industry, better known as Nollywood, has grown explosively in recent years and is today the world’s third-largest. It is estimated that a film is produced once a day and is then distributed digitally or sold at the huge electronics market Idumota in Lagos. The extremely fast production time and the low budget often give the Nollywood films an element of amateurism, but they are easily accessible to both the African and foreign public, and have therefore become an important part of West African culture.
