To mitigate the ongoing impact of COVID-19, this year’s festival will be taking place primarily online on the BFI Player, which will allow you to enjoy a curated selection of films from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the UK. Film Africa will also be hosting a reduced programme of socially distanced venue screenings in London.
The film programme will be accompanied by an exciting programme of events, including Director Q&As, panel discussions, industry sessions and masterclasses, which will also take place online and will be broadcast live on Facebook. The full programme will be announced Wednesday 30 September, so watch this space!
Film Africa’s mission remains the same – to offer a platform to showcase the best contemporary cinema from Africa and its Diaspora – and this year’s blended festival model will enable them to connect to more audiences than ever before, in London, the UK and internationally. More info here.
