How to Access the Festival

How to Access the Festival

This year Film Africa presents 12 socially-distanced cinema screenings at the Rich Mix and BFI Southbank, which will include all our shorts and a selection of our narrative and documentary features. Audiences numbers will be reduced to allow for social distancing. We strongly encourage you to book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. 

We will also host 8 narrative and documentary features on the BFI Player during the 10 days of the festival. The BFI Player offers a 14-day free subscription period, which means you could watch our Film Africa 2020 titles for FREE and then decide whether to keep enjoying the diverse selection of films offered through a BFI Player subscription. Please note that the player is only available in the UK. To register, please visit player.bfi .org.uk/sign-up.

As part of our online offer, we’ll be hosting a number of Watch Parties, featuring exclusive live Director’s Q&As, as well as Dine & View experiences for you to enjoy together with friends and family. There will also be a number of virtual events held on Zoom, which will require registration. Follow us on Facebook or look through the festival schedule for more details on all our virtual events. 

This year all of our films are only suitable for over 18’s
