Edima Otuokon

Expert in Communications, Development, Policy & CO-Founder of Ladima Foundation

For over two decades, Edima Otuokon has worked across Africa in the education sector, government policy consultation, conference programming and entertainment. Her recent focus on the African film industry stems from her roles as Workshop and Training Coordinator and Conference & Sidebar Program Manager at the Zanzibar International Film Festival and DISCOP, respectively. These roles exposed her to the imbalances faced by women in film, TV and media, which led to Edima co-founding the Ladima Foundation with Lara Utian-Preston. The Ladima Foundation is a pan-African non-profit company dedicated to the development and promotion of women in film, TV and media across Africa.
