CFP Launch

Capital Film Productions (CFP), a film investment firm, today announces its official launch, aiming to support the creative engines of the African film industry, starting with Nollywood. Co-founded by Adim Isiakpona and Hamza Kassim, CFP has a clear-cut vision: to democratize movie investing and provide funding to promising filmmakers, enabling them to produce high-quality films that shine a global spotlight on Africa’s film industry.

Capital Film Productions has spent the past three years supporting filmmakers, working behind the scenes of some of Nollywood’s explosive successes. CFP has invested in and supported some blockbuster films such as ‘Brotherhood’ and ‘Gangs of Lagos.’ During this period, CFP also invested in the production of soon to be released — ‘The Party’, ‘Omo Daddy’, ‘The Other Side of the Bridge’ and four (4) other films, committing a total of approximately USD 800,000, projected to hit strong double-digit returns at the end of the fund cycle. All of which is supported by a base of Nigerian investors aggregated over the period. This track record highlights the company’s approach to investment and ongoing commitment to support African storytelling talents.

“In a way, CFP is a dream come true for us. It all started off as a scrappy idea with “Our First Act,” raising funds from our personal finances to support film projects, to a “Second Act” that saw us managing Liquidity Provider’s funds. From these experiences, we’ve seen firsthand how access to adequate funding and support can uplift the entire production of a film and potentially the industry. Our “Third Act” is already in full swing, and we are raising approximately USD 550,000 to fund six (6) films in 2024 only. Ultimately, our goal is to be that bridge that connects investors and storytellers, enabling the creation of truly remarkable & profitable films,” said Adim Isiakpona, Co-founder and CEO of Capital Film Productions.

CFPs’ mission is to progressively build a $50M fund in a few years while strategically partnering with filmmakers on the continent to fund African movie projects. The company has adopted a
smart-cautious approach to building and managing the fund, applying a multi-year strategy to selections of filmmakers and the levels at which they invest in a given project.

“As we navigate the hurdles of growing a successful film fund, we will prioritize collaborations
supporting the industry’s growth to elevate African films to more global relevance. We welcome everyone to join us in this cinematic journey as we build an ecosystem where everyone benefits,” said Hamza Kassim, Co-founder, Capital Film Productions.
