Scenarios from Africa is a community mobilisation, education and media project about HIV/AIDS carried out with and for young people. It gives children and young adults an exciting opportunity to educate themselves and others about HIV/AIDS by inviting them to participate with internationally acclaimed directors in the production of a collection of short films.
The films are based on ideas thought up by young people in a series of contests. So far, over 105,000 young people from 37 African countries have taken part in these contests. Over a thousand local and international partner organisations are involved in organising the contests and selecting the winning ideas.
Twenty-eight short fiction films are currently available. Some of the films are very touching, others extremely funny. They are distributed on a non-commercial basis across Africa and well beyond, for broadcast on national television stations and on international satellite networks.

Scenarios from Africa is coordinated by Global Dialogues - a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting excellence in education and communication about HIV/AIDS. For more information about Scenarios From Africa please visit the Global Dialogues website.
