Introducing selected films for 2016

We are kicking off this festival year with the best African films our filmmakers have mustered. You have worked really hard and it shows. Thank you for responding to our call, we received submissions from 15 African countries in counting. For a premiere event, you have a lot of trust in us, we do not plan to disappoint you. Thank you.

This platform is really about you. Our mission is to bring our filmmakers in one place, bridge cultures by blurring the lines that have always divided us, we are one. Our continent is known as the motherland because we have one mother. We hope to keep bringing awareness of our issues through your films, in turn come up with sustainable solutions.

As the submissions process have drawn to a close, we will be kicking off this festival year with some of the best films we have received. Each day, starting on April 4th we are showcasing our “Trailer of the Day” through our Facebook and YouTube channel. We encourage you to see these trailers, and support your fellow filmmakers, help us in our efforts to bring this awareness far and wide. Africa is indeed a continent to be celebrated, our filmmakers need to be recognized. We hope you are enjoying this platform so far.

We have our work cut out for us after we have received so many noteworthy films, this year’s will be a stiff completion for potential nominees of our coveted awards. With the help of our expert panel of judges, we will select six of the best films in twelve categories to compete. Your audience would also have a say in which trailer and poster they consider the Best. We will be introducing People’s Choice Awards in those two categories to place value in those important aspects of our films that sometimes get overlooked.
