Film Festival

African cinema has been a major site of cultural struggle, hampered by the global inequalities laid down during the era in which “Europe underdeveloped Africa” materially and culturally. The cultural and epistemic disparagement of Africa and Africans is sustained by the colonial mindset, nowadays buttressed by a multi-million dollar Western-dominated entertainment industry, typified by Hollywood. The ingenuity and brilliance of Africa’s most talented filmmakers and documentarians are on display at this exclusively curated selection of African film. Historical revelations, biographical documentaries and the thrilling creative imaginations of African filmmakers are made available to the pan-African community through the Kwame Nkrumah Festival screenings. We invite you to sit back, switch on your mind as well as your screen and be inspired.
