Welcome to the exciting 9th year of Watch-Africa Film Festival!
We are delighted to bring you an exciting program of African cinema from 10th - 26th November at cinemas near you! Showcasing 20 films from across the continent followed by Q&A with filmmakers or panel discussion. This year's program brings you some of the best documentaries covering sports, politics, heritage and immigration. From Afrofutiristic films that takes you on a journey like never before to our package of short films for families, there is something for everyone. We will have our usual market space, music and performances and masterclasses to go along with a symposium on African cinema, wine tasting and dancing to Afrobeat.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Watch-Africa Cymru is...
...the Welsh, African Film Festival
Watch-Africa is Wales’ Annual African Film Festival celebrating the best of African cinema. Launched in 2013, the festival provides a platform for African films, art and culture in Wales. It brings a wide-range of films covering areas across the continent, as well as engaging and interactive activities and events related to the festival. It provides a platform for works by African, African diasporas as well as Welsh and international directors and artists which bring fresh perspectives on Africa to its economic, social, political and cultural life.
The WAC FILM CLUB is an informal community of people interested in watching, exploring and getting involved in African film. The club which is part of Watch-Africa reaches out to undeserved areas for cultural/foreign screenings, especially ethnically diverse communities. It allows African films to reach these communities outside the core festival.
