Film Africa 2020 Cinema Programme Updates

Film Africa 2020 Cinema Programme Updates

We hope that you are enjoying Film Africa 2020, whether in the cinema or at home with friends or family. With the national lockdown starting this Thursday, we have adapted our cinema programme. You can continue to access our Film Africa Collection on the BFI Player as well as joining our programme of Online Watch Parties with live Director Q&A’s,  Dine and View screenings and online panels.

We have rescheduled our physical screenings at Rich Mix to earlier in the week, however unfortunately we have had to cancel two screenings at BFI Southbank. Here is the updated schedule for the week.

If you are unable to attend one of the rescheduled screenings, please contact Rich Mix Box Office boxoffice@richmix.org.uk. If you have tickets to our two cancelled BFI screenings, please contact BFI Southbank on 020 7255 1444 for more information.

Find out more about the measures Rich Mix is taking to keep you safe under social distancing.
