Welcome to the 5th edition of the Wales African Film Festival: Watch-Africa. The festival is back, packed with a diverse range of inspiring, innovative, educational, thought-provoking and challenging stories from the African continent.
The festival will kickstart at Taliesin Arts Centre on the 23rd October finishing at Chapter on the 12th November. Check our programme for more information about screening as well as venues and dates near your local area.
As one of this year’s main themes ‘Lost African Classics’, we will showcase some of African films that were banned, censored, lost or forgotten. Look out for the Lost Africa Classic logo.
The main programme will focus on 10 titles from across the continent.
We thank our funders, sponsors, partners and friends who helped to bring this diverse programme of films, discussions, Q&As with directors, pop-up cinema screenings, workshops, live performances and food. There will be plenty to experience and enjoy as we look forward to welcoming you to #WatchAfrica2017
