Afrika Eye 2012
Please note: this season finished in Nov 2012
Bristol's own African film festival returns with another vibrant line-up of cinema, music, workshops and discussion. The two key themes this year are a look at fifty years of independence for Jamaica, including the 'Better Has Come' strand, curated by Graeme Evelyn, and 'State of Mind', an inspiring look at African trauma healing.
Special combo ticket offers available for the Better Has Come (Life & Debt, Better Mus' Come and Jamaican Creative Industries Seminar & Panel) and State of Mind: African Healing (Weapon of War, State of Mind and State of Mind Seminar) strands.
Double Points for all Loyalty Card holders for all Afrika Eye screenings and events!
