Submissions for Film Africa 2016 are now closed and will open again in the new year. Have a look at our FilmFreeway page for more details about our submissions process.
Film Africa accepts films of all lengths and genres, including fiction, documentary, animation and experimental titles on any topic.
Submissions may be eligible for our festival awards. The Baobab Award for Best Short Film exists to support filmmakers living and working on the continent and the winning short is screened twice during the festival, including at the prestigious Film Africa Closing Gala. All new feature films will be in the running for the AUF Audience Award for Best Feature Film supported by the African Union Foundation and chosen by you, the audience.
