Film Africa, London’s biggest African and African diaspora cinema festival returns for its 9th edition on Friday 30 October to Sunday 8 November 2020 at Rich Mix. It will be presented by the Royal African Society.
Showcasing 46 films from 14 African countries, including 25 UK, European and World premieres, Film Africa will host 12 socially-distanced screenings at BFI Southbank and Rich Mix as well as featuring a selection of 8 narrative and documentary films on BFI Player – the festival’s first online collaboration with a streaming platform in its 10- year history.
This year’s selection of films mirrors the combined minds and sensibilities of three curators, based in three corners of Africa – Aseye Tamakloe in Accra, Ghana (West); Nyambura M. Waruingi in Nairobi, Kenya (East); and Katarina Hedrén in Johannesburg, South Africa. The films – feature-length and shorts, fiction and documentary – reflect a multitude of experiences, subject matters and styles, with stories unfolding on the African continent as well as in its Diaspora.
