Established in 2011, Film Africa has become a highly anticipated festival in London’s busy calendar of events and a permanent fixture in the capital’s cultural landscape. The Royal African Society works on a model of partnership funding to sustain the festival, which includes a mixture of private and public funding, corporate sponsorship and earned income.

We are always looking to partner with companies whose brands and vision are aligned with ours and are keen to embark on multi-year partnerships to ensure Film Africa’s future. We can offer a range of benefits including brand positioning, audience and talent engagement, client recognition, and volunteering opportunities. To discuss sponsorship and partnership opportunities, please get in touch with Sheila Ruiz, Deputy Director at the Royal African Society, on

Film Africa is brought to you by the Royal African Society. Film Africa 2018 has been made possible through the financial support of the BFI Audience Fund, the Miles Morland Foundation and through a strategic partnership with the British Council. This year’s festival sponsors include WorldRemit, Divine Chocolate, Karma Kola, Aduna and MoneyGram. We would like to express our gratitude to all our partners and the many individuals who contribute to making Film Africa a success, year on year. We are also proud to announce that Film Africa was awarded the BFI Screen Diversity mark for good practice, meeting four out of four of the Diversity Standards.
