We are honoured to announce that the Film Africa 2022 Audience Award Winner is THE UMBRELLA MEN

” We are so proud to have been selected to screen at the Film Africa Festival in London and to win the audience award is such an honour. We are beyond excited and grateful. Thank you for showing our film to an international audience.” John Barker (Director of The Umbrella Men)

One of Film Africa’s principal aims is to support the work of African and African diaspora filmmakers and provide a platform for films that would otherwise be unknown to UK audiences. Established in 2015, the Film Africa Audience for Best Narrative Feature carries a cash prize of £1,000 and is particularly special because it is chosen by you – our audiences! Every festival edition a selection of new fiction feature films vie for the award, and the line-up always represents the exciting range of contemporary storytelling in African cinema today.
