Film Africa is The Royal African Society’s annual festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora. Now in its seventh year, the festival has become the key platform for African cinema in London and the UK.
From Friday 2 – Sunday 11 November 2018, we’ll be bringing another exciting film programme of films to six venues across London. This will be accompanied by a vibrant series of events, including director Q&As, talks and discussions; professional workshops and master classes; school screenings and family activities; the Industry Forum; and Film Africa LIVE! music nights.
In 2017, 4,500 people attended the festival featuring a wide-ranging programme of 40 films from across 27 African countries, including 25 World, European, UK or London premieres. We also hosted 12 filmmakers and talent from the continent and the diaspora, helping to bring the programme to life through Q&As, talks and panel discussions.
