Orire Nwani’s ‘Love & Seclusion’ Gears Up For New York Premiere

Conceptified Media and CANO Production are thrilled to announce the North American premiere of their highly anticipated feature film, ‘Love & Seclusion,’ directed by Orire Nwani. The film, written by Clementina Ojie and produced by Josh Olaoluwa, has already garnered attention by securing the New York City Women’s Fund in the feature fiction category in 2023.

The premiere is scheduled to take place at New York University on February 23, 2024. The event will include a screening of the film, followed by an engaging Q&A session with the cast and creative team, providing audiences with a unique opportunity to delve into the making of this captivating project.

‘Love & Seclusion’ boasts a stellar cast, featuring Efa Iwara and Tope Olowoniyan in leading roles, supported by Inem King, Olanrewaju Ayanwale, Jaybo Charles, and Odiah Emmanuel. The film, set against the backdrop of the pandemic, explores the life of Tola, a young wife in Lagos, determined to use quarantine as an opportunity to conceive her first child, unaware of her husband’s conflicting intentions.

This exciting premiere follows the film’s recognition at the Red Sea Souk market for Conceptified Media’s project, ‘Fantastic Tale,’ showcasing the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional and captivating storytelling.

While the global release date is yet to be confirmed, the production team expresses confidence in a wider release in 2024 after a successful run on the festival circuit.

In a previous milestone, ‘Love & Seclusion’ received the NYC Women’s Fund award, a remarkable achievement for African cinema. Launched by the City of New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), this initiative addresses the underrepresentation of women and women-identifying artists in the industry. The grant, facilitated by the New York Foundation for the Arts, supports the film’s post-production phase, ensuring a premiere that promises to captivate audiences with its poignant narrative, compelling performances, and insightful exploration of relationships and personal aspirations.

Conceptified Media’s recent success at the Red Sea Souk market further emphasises the company’s dedication to delivering exceptional and captivating storytelling. Audiences are encouraged to stay tuned for updates on “Love & Seclusion” and Conceptified Media’s future endeavours.
