London’s Film Africa Festival Calls for Submissions



Film Africa, the Royal African Society’s annual festival celebrating African cinema, has opened submissions for its fifth edition. The 2015 festival takes place October 10 to November 8 across London.

The fifth annual festival brings London audiences an eclectic program of films and special events including: director Q&As and talks; professional workshops and masterclasses; school screenings and family activities; the Industry Forum; and Film Africa LIVE! music nights.

Film Africa accepts films of all lengths and genres, including fiction, documentary, animation and experimental titles on any topic.

The festival also provides a platform for emerging talent through the Baobab Award for Best Short Film, which supports filmmakers living and working on the continent. Shortlisted films are judged by a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals, are screened during the festival, and the winner is announced at the Film Africa Closing Gala on November 8.

The submission deadline is June 30. Find the submission form and details HERE.
