Baobab Award for Best Short Film
Established in 2011, the Film Africa Baobab Award for Best Short Film exists to recognize and support new talent from emerging African filmmakers putting in evidence our commitment to nurture and support new voices in African film-making. The Award consists of a £1,000 cash prize. Nine shorts directed by up-and-coming directors from across the continent and the diaspora have been selected to vie for the 2014 Baobab Award. The award will be judged by a three-person jury of film professionals including African film curator Keith Shiri, writer and filmmaker Rungano Nyoni and writer Ade Solanke.
