One of Film Africa’s principle aims is to support the work of African and African diaspora filmmakers and provide a platform for titles that would otherwise be unknown to UK audiences. The Film Africa Audience for Best Feature has a cash prize of £1,500 and is particularly special because it is chosen by you. Nine new fiction feature films will vie for the Award and the line-up represents the exciting range of storytelling on offer in African cinema today.

You can vote for as many films as you attend. Voting cards are handed out at the start of all eligible screenings – simply cast your vote on your way out. The winner will be announced at the Film Africa Closing Gala on Sunday 5 November at Ciné Lumière and on social media. It’s your opinion that matters most… Come and have your say!
