2018

Join us in October/November for the 6th edition of Watch-Africa; Wales African film festival! Celebrating African cinema across Wales!

 

This year our annual Watch Africa programme celebrates the ground breaking cinematic legacy of Senegal’s Djibril Diop Mambéty, famously dubbed the ‘African Orson Welles’. We are fortunate to be able to show Touki Bouki from 1973 (which inspired the recent Beyonce and Jay Z world tour) his classic edgy, energetic ode to youthful idealism and rebellion which follows two youngsters as they attempt to escape what they perceive to be the poverty and backwardness of their native Senegal for France

 

21 Exciting and thought-provoking films from 8 different countries that will thrill people of all ages. From family friendly films, serious topics in animal poaching Feminism in Islamic World to an Africa-inspired, Western Spagheti film, Watch-Africa 2018 is not one to miss!

 

An array of stalls displaying African arts and crafts; Fairtrade Products, Exhibitions and Welsh based charities working in Africa.

 

We will also have caterers providing food from some of the African countries.

 

Ballet Nimba will perform some of their dances throughout the day at the main lobby.
