About the Hausa Home Video Resource Centre

The Hausa Home Video Resource Centre is an initiative of the Department of Mass Communication at Bayero University in Kano, Nigeria. It was founded with the aim to provide access to information about the Hausa film industry for researchers, journalists, and the general public and to provide useful resources for practitioners in the industry. It is currently being coordinated by Carmen McCain, a PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Nura Ibrahim, a PhD candidate at Bayero University.

In the next few months, we hope to provide access to archived newspaper articles about the Hausa film industry, updates on resources for Hausa film practitioners, and summaries of Hausa films for the general public. You can access photos and documents at our picasa site: http://www.google.com/profiles/hausahomevideoresource#about

You can contact the Hausa Home Video Resource Centre at hausahomevideoresource @ gmail.com. We welcome any feedback or suggestions on how we can improve the site or the centre.

  1. This is a very important project.

    Majority of movie producers in Nigeria are ignorant of the contributions of the Hausa Film Industry. And the Hausa filmmakers should come out and screen their movies in the South and at international film festivals like the Hausas from Mali and other parts of Africa.

  2. a superb and wonderful development
