Adam Madojemu

Filmmaker | Storyteller | Problem-Solver


Filmmaker. In 2015, his short film ‘I Had Strings’ was a finalist in the Sundance Ignite Challenge, a collaboration between the Sundance Institute and Adobe’s Project 1324.

In 2014, Adam launched a media collective, ‘Mad District’ to promote creative collaboration and encourage the development of original content and productions relating to social commentary in Africa.

So far, this has spurred the creation of short films, web shows, artwork, and a podcast called ‘News Straight Outta The Calabash’ with collaboration between individuals from countries such as Nigeria, Kenya, and Canada.

Since then, Adam has made many attempts to stop referring to himself in the third-person.
