International award winning Nigerian filmmaker Chike Ibekwe is one of the Presidents of the Jury at the 15th Ecrans Noirs Film Festival from June 18-25, 2011, in Yaoundé, Cameroun.

Ibekwe’s first feature “Eternal” was co-winner of the Golden Screen best film award with “An Unusual Woman” by Burkinabe director Abdoulaye Dao at the 2010 edition of the festival.

The Festival Director Cameroon film maker Bassek Ba Kobhio said Ecrans Noirs was started as a meeting place for African filmmakers with the public and each other and to create a significant awareness for the cinema in Central Africa.

The film festival has become a competitive event since three years ago, where all types and genres of African films are shown, along with films about Africa or African communities made by filmmakers outside Africa.
