My name Bolaji Tijani-Qudus and I am a Filmmaker. Several years ago, I reached a crossroad. I had been working as an Accountant/Entrepreneur for over a decade; I contemplated pursuing a master’s degree in Business or follow my story telling dreams. I chose the latter. I published my first novel WTF Moment in 2011. I then enrolled in the Academy of Arts, San Francisco, where I obtained an MFA in Film & Television with an emphasis in Directing (2015).

 

Around this time, I also founded I HELLA Love Shorts; a new kind of film festival where filmmakers from around the world, have the opportunity to unveil their work on a quarterly basis, and audiences gain access to the best short films.

I have since produced  a few features and several short films, winning the 1st Place – “New Media Jury Award” at the Hollywood Black Film Festival (2017)

My cinematic journey continues…
