FirstBank is passionate about the arts, and is partnering with EbonyLife TV, under the First@arts strategic initiative, to produce ‘FirstStars’, a reality TV show and a feature length movie. ‘FirstStars’, is designed to recognize and support the discovery and management of talented youth in the film industry. The search is open to all Nigerians through a series of auditions and challenges, to identify the brightest talents in five categories: Director, Producer, Art Director, Script Writer and Actor. The winners will be rewarded with cash prizes.
The reality series will be highly engaging as it will capture the process of selecting the best talents, inviting the audience to go on an emotional journey of ‘passion’ and ‘people’, two core values of FirstBank. The identified stars will be mentored by professionals and will work together on a feature length movie to be premiered by FirstBank and shown on television and in theatres.
