Aigbokhaevbolo shared the following message on Facebook: “Talent Press is presented in cooperation with Fipresci, an association of national organizations of professional film critics and film journalists from around the world which lobbies for the promotion and development of film culture. The programme invites four critics to cover the films and events of the Durban International Film festival for online and print publication. Talent press has four participants and they are Andrew Kaggwa, Oluwale Oluwadahunsi, Isabella Akinseye and Kennedy Omoro. They will be mentored by film writers/reviewers Sarah Dawson, Oris Aigbokhaevbolo, Debashine Thangevelo and Shaibu Hussein.”
In the last one year, Aigbokhaevbolo has been invited for the Berlinale Talents, FESPACO and Rotterdam International Film Festival in addition to Talents Durban based on the strength of his film reviews.
