Brought to you by the Royal African Society, Film Africa is a festival and programme celebrating contemporary African cinema in the UK!
Established in 2011, Film Africa showcases the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora. Every festival edition offers diverse London audiences a high quality and wide-ranging film programme accompanied by a vibrant series of events, including director Q&As, talks and discussions; professional workshops and masterclasses; Film Africa Young Audiences school screenings and family activities; and Film Africa LIVE! music nights. Film Africa also recognises and supports new film-making talent through the Baobab Award for Best Short Film and the Audience Award for Best Feature Film.
As an arts programme, Film Africa runs the Film Africa Travel Grants 2019-2020. This pilot scheme, developed and delivered in partnership with the British Council, offers African filmmakers the opportunity to travel to the UK to attend one of eight key international film festivals where their work has been invited to screen.
