Film Africa, London’s celebration of African and African diaspora cinema presented by the Royal African Society, is delighted to announce that in 2024, Film Africa will take place from Friday 25 October until Sunday November 3. The festival will continue its mission of highlighting African and African diaspora filmmaking.

Film Africa is London’s biggest biennial festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora brought to you by the Royal African Society. Established in 2011, the festival brings diverse London and UK audiences a high quality and wide-ranging film programme accompanied by a vibrant series of events, including director Q&As, talks and panel discussions; workshops and masterclasses; Film Africa Young Audiences school screenings and family activities; and Film Africa LIVE! music nights.

Film Africa’s main objective is to represent a wide range of films and filmmakers stemming from Africa and the African diaspora. We only accept submissions from African and African diaspora filmmakers. Film Africa accepts films of all lengths and genres, including fiction, documentary, shorts and experimental. The year of production must be 2022 or after – any films made before this will not be considered.
