After successfully hosting a stakeholders workshop with organizations at the vanguard of social change and a couple of film makers, Afrinolly hosted 25 top notch screen writers for a week to discuss the series of social change issues that have been identified and to expose screen writers to research works that would guide in the development of Screenplays that would not only highlight these social change issues but would also entertain and educate the public.

In Partnership with Ford Foundation, Afrinolly Cinema4Change project seeks to use the power of film to help build a dramatic structure that helps people not only see the person or issues that a film can address, but see themselves in that story. Afrinolly believes that partnering with non–profits, public sector organizations and corporations can create films that are artistically compelling and socially significant.

The seven days’ workshop held in Lagos, Nigeria with prolific Screenwriter Femi Kayode as facilitator had in attendance Jude Idada, Kemi Adesoye, Tunde Aladese, Jude Dibia, Haye Okoh, Adeola Ike, Yakubu Lamai, Michael Osuji, Yomi Ososanya, Ejiro Onobrakpor, Obi Okoroafor, Omotayo Abereoje, Ben Chiadika, Onyeka Nwelue, John Tukura, Jenim Dibie, Kayode Faniy, Olubunmi Familoni, Alexandra Hul, Pearl Osibu and Udoka Oyeka.
