I am Korede Azeez, a writer-director whose filmmaking journey started in 2018 when I co-produced and directed my first short film, 'Tip of the Edge'. Since then, I have directed two other short films and a feature film, 'It Blooms in June'.

In 2022, I won the Netflix-UNESCO African Folktales Reimagined competition and the short film I directed will be on Netflix soon.
