Afrika Eye 2016
Afrika Eye - the South West’s biggest celebration of African cinema and culture – returns in November with a packed weekend of new films, discussions, family workshops plus live music featuring Abass Dodoo, the Ghanaian master drummer best known for his collaborations with the legendary Ginger Baker. Screenings include features and documentaries from or about Mali, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda and Zambia. And to open the festival, a very special preview of A United Kingdom (not on general release until Fri 25 Nov). This is the true story of how the marriage of the heir to the throne of what is now Botswana and an English secretary defied convention, tradition, family, apartheid and Empire and inspired the world.
During the weekend we will be welcoming filmmakers, and directors at Q&As and panel discussions so there will be plenty to talk about, enjoy and share - we hope you can join us for what promises to be a great festival.
