Thank you once again to everyone who joined us for Film Africa 2013 back in November. We hope you enjoyed the festival and that you are looking forward to Film Africa 2014 as much as we are.
Film Africa will return for its fourth edition, taking place once again in early November 2014 (exact dates TBC) over ten days and across different London venues, including the BFI Southbank, Ciné Lumière, Hackney Picturehouse, Rich Mix, Ritzy Brixton, South London Gallery, and the University of Westminster.
We are very excited to announce that this year Film Africa plans to work much more closely with the other UK African film festivals – Africa in Motion (AiM) Film Festival in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Afrika Eye in Bristol, the Cambridge African Film Festival and Watch Africa in Wales – creating a UK-wide African film season.
This strategic partnership aims to increase the choice of African films available to audiences across the UK, raising the profile of African cinema nationally. Now more than ever, we stand a real chance of mainstreaming African cinema and we invite you to help us achieve this. We welcome sponsorship support for Film Africa 2014 and beyond. Please do get in touch if you are interested in this opportunity.
