nlist is a Nigerian movie directory & casting platform, built to aid local moviemakers in discovering and casting actors and crew. Basically IMDB for Nollywood. Born out of a need for an easy way for both fans & industry stakeholders to get info about Nigerian movies & the people behind them, nlist provides plot summaries, trivia, financial information, media and details about the cast and crew of Nigerian/African movies and series.
nlist also provides a casting platform that integrates seamlessly with the actor profiles. Users can sign up, claim their actor profiles and build their portfolio with reels and headshots, which makes them discoverable to casting agents. Casting agents are provided with an easy-to-use dashboard where they can filter applicants, view their past work, and contact them securely and privately for opportunities.
For fans of Nollywood, they have a budding community where they can save favourites, connect with other fans and leave reviews.
nlist aims to shine a light on the extensive and gradually expanding industry that is Nollywood in a way other entertainment and movie sites do not.
