Almost a year ago we launched the first edition of the Mobile Film Festival Africa.
A year in which the world suffered under the terrible COVID-19 pandemic.
For many years, I have been convinced that the Mobile Film Festival, which I created 16 years ago around the format 1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film, will meet the creators of Africa.
They have confirmed this to us by submitting 497 films from 38 countries on the African continent in the midst of the pandemic, so I would first of all like to thank them infinitely for their energy, passion and creativity.
I am very proud to present to you the official selection of 51 one-minute films from 23 countries.
All the films are accessible free of charge via all major social networks and YouTube. All of them are subtitled in French, English and Arabic to make them even more accessible.
These films tell the story of Africa today in a creative, inventive, intimate way with humour and engagement on important societal issues.
These films were created by young Africans who have this continent in common and who want to tell and share it in images.
Now it's up to you! They are counting on you, film enthusiasts, creators, film schools, associations, film commissions..., to discover them and then to bring them to life for as many people as possible via your social networks, websites, but also through TV or cinema screenings.
Thank you for your support and take care of yourself,
Bruno Smadja, founder of the Mobile Film Festival
