Cross River’s multi award winning film producer, Egor Efiok will be one of the few people who will be receiving an Award Of Excellence at the Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival on 1st November 2015.

Egor, who is currently based in London, is upbeat about the award and she has also extended an invitation to the State Governor, Ben Ayade to be her guest at the festival in Los Angeles.
Speaking about the award, Egor said;
“I thank God for his faithfulness in my life. I also thank my friends, family and the public, for without their support, love and encouragement, I would not be where I am today.
I will also use the opportunity after screening Unge’s War, to showcase my new Hollywood Meets Nollywood film, ‘Death ATLAS,’ which is still in its pre-production stage, and will be the first of its kind paranormal film ever to be shot in Nigeria, and the first time I will be bringing international stars down to Nigeria to shoot.”
Many Hollywood stars are expected to attend this prestigious event starting with some of the main cast of Egor first film “Turning Point” – KD Aubert, Ebbe Bassey, Ernie Hudson, Todd Bridges and Joe Estevez; others include Missy Elliott, Chante Moore, Meagan Good and many others. Hon. Desmond Elliot, Egor’s close friend and client will also be there to lend her his support.
Egor is a brand ambassador for Nehita Jewelry, the jeweller to A-list Hollywood stars like the late Whitney Houston, Halle Berry, Katy Perry amongst others and will be blinged up by the brand and dressed by Jaz Designs.
