Film Africa 2012
Film Africa, the UK’s largest annual festival of African cinema and culture, is back in November 2012 with 10 days of more than 70 amazing African films, more than 30 leading filmmakers offering Q&As, free professional workshops, and nine African music nights.
After the huge success of FilmAfrica 2011, this year’s festival is even bigger and better, with a whole range of new exciting educational, family, and arts events alongside the main film programme. And this year, in addition to continuing our Silver Baobab Award for Best Short African Film and The Distribution Forum, we will also be inaugurating the Film Africa Audience Award and Picha House, an alternative cinema venue with free screenings throughout the festival.
A Royal African Society event, in association with SOAS, University of London, Film Africa is hosted by the Hackney Picturehouse and The Ritzy in Brixton, and also takes place at the Rich Mix in Shoreditch, the BFI Southbank, Screen on the Green in Islington, and the South London Gallery.
This means that, no matter where you live in London, you’ll be able to come and enjoy the festival’s rich offerings.
