Chika Anadu is a Nigerian filmmaker best known for the film B for Boy (2013). She has also written and produced several short films. Anadu's films are known for tackling issues of gender discrimination and cultural pressures surrounding tradition in Nigeria.


In 2010, the New York Film Academy came to Nigeria for the first time, offering month-long workshops in directing, acting, screenwriting, and camera work. Anadu chose to enroll in the screenwriting workshop instead of directing, despite knowing that she wanted to be a director. During this time, Anadu applied to the Cannes Cinéfondation Residence Program in Paris. The 14-page screenplay treatment that was part of her submission was the basis for what would become her first feature-length film, B for Boy (2013). Anadu secured one of the six spots and moved to Paris to take part. She wrote the screenplay for B for Boy (2013) during her two-and-a-half-week stay.


Anadu moved back to Nigeria in 2008 and began work in TV and Film production. Unsatisfied with her experience, Anadu started writing and shooting her own short films in October and November 2009. Her first short film, Epilogue (2009), was shown at the 2010 San Diego Black Film Festival in the United States. Ava (2010) was shown in the Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner in 2010.
