Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF)

Genre : Festival
Principal country concerned : Column : Cinema/tv

The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) is a platform for the world to zoom in on the talent and beauty of Africa through film. Starting December 2010, it will hold yearly in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria hosting both local and international filmmakers, celebrities, actors, directors, film buyers, distributors, visual artists, film students, amateurs, film lovers and the press.

The AFRIFF theme is Africa unites. It draws on the principle that being African is a bond that goes beyond geography, birth or lineage; as people of African origin are spread across the globe and Africa is also a proud home to many non-Africans. The vision is to reflect a common true African identity and re-establish Africa as an original home to all.

Africa has been able to capture the world's attention through its ancient cultural heritage and beginnings of civilisation. With films it will have the power to connect people from around the world, creating common ground hence promoting boundless unity.

BE PART OF AFRIFF as Africa welcomes the world like never before.

In 2010, AFRIFF was launched at the 6th Africa Academy Awards (AMAA) on the 10th of April in Bayelsa, Nigeria by Peace Anyiam-Osigwe; founder of AMAA | Call for Entries now open till 13th of August 2010 | AFRIFF announce its call for entry at the 63rd Cannes International Film Festival | AFRIFF lauches its new video promo
