The 12th edition of the annual iREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival (iREP) will hold from March 16 – 19, 2023. This year’s festival is tagged: Documenting the Underserved: Agenda For Nigeria 2023.
For 11 years, iREP has provided a platform for filmmakers from different parts of the world to share their works and engage audiences in very insightful discussions.
The festival is conceptually framed around the generic theme of Africa in Self-Conversation, which the organisers have maintained over the years, is drawn from the founding conceptual framework of the iREP Documentary Film Forum.

The Forum is designed to promote awareness about the power of the documentary format to serve as a means of deepening and sharing social and cultural education as well as encouraging participatory democracy in African societies.
Last year’s edition, with the theme ‘Unfiltered: African Stories. Stories from Africa’, featured 80 films from 28 countries across four continents, the event addressed the global media’s representations of Africa and their role in perpetuating harmful stereotypes.
Attendees and stakeholders described the cultural carnival as an unforgettable experience for the quality of the film offerings and the insightful conversations they generated.
This year, the programme list features screenings, presentations, panel discussions, and a training workshop for aspiring filmmakers, the iRep film festival appeals to seasoned veterans and industry newbies alike.
In keeping with the organizers’ commitment to enhancing participation and expanding social and cultural education, the iRep festival is free to attend.
The 2023 iRep international documentary film festival will hold from March 16 – 19 with the theme ‘Documenting the Underserved’. For more information on the festival schedule, selected films, and registration, please visit irepfilmfestival.com
