This November Film Africa is planning a series of film screenings and events to celebrate 21 years of Nollywood. They are compiling a free ‘zine that shares stories about, and insights into, the last 21 years of Nigerian video film. They are looking especially for texts discussing Nollywood consumption and production in the UK.
Film Africa, London’s largest festival of African cinema, is delighted to announce that it is accepting film submissions for its 2013 festival edition. Film Africa 2013 will take place from Friday 1st to Sunday 10th November at venues across London.
They are currently accepting submissions for all Film Africa categories, including feature length fiction films, documentaries, experimental and short films by either African filmmakers living in Africa or in the Diaspora or films by non-African filmmakers about Africa.
If you would like to submit your film to be considered for Film Africa 2013, please either send a vimeo link to firstname.lastname@example.org or a DVD screener by post to the following address:
Film Africa 2013
Royal African Society
36, Gordon Square
London WC1H 0PD
When making your submission, please include a cover letter introducing yourself and your film and, most importantly, include an email address for correspondence.
Please note that due to the high volume of films under consideration, we are unable to respond to every individual submission, and will only inform you if your film has been selected. We are also unable to return screeners. Film Africa respects filmmakers’ copyright and will take all precautions to ensure that your film remains safe from piracy.
The deadline for submissions is Monday 8th July 2013.
