Gorée Island Cinema (Senegal), is a cultural company that works to promote African cinema and its Diaspora.

We are about to launch "Seetaan", an online distribution platform. Far from the usual way of accumulating contents of big platforms, our wish is to offer a meticulous object whose richness will reside in its capacity to emphasize each film that will integrate its programming.

In this ensemble, we remain driven by the same concern: to provoke encounters between a spectator and our African and diasporic cinemas.

Seetaan will offer two free streaming sessions per month, each consisting of one to three films. Participants will be able to access the platform by registration with a limited number of available seats. The screenings will be accompanied by interviews and other vignettes that will enrich the viewer experience.

As part of the preparation of our programming, we are launching a call for films. We would be happy to consider any proposal related to our editorial line that is sent to us either directly:
- by email at
- or via the form available on our website

We will be happy to discuss with you further the modalities of distribution.
