Español

El Festival de Cine Africano de Tarifa (FCAT) alcanza este año su octava edición y prevé, del 11 al 19 de junio próximos, la proyección de más de 100 películas africanas o sobre África. El festival da a conocer las cinematografías de África y expone un amplio y representativo abanico de todas las producciones audiovisuales africanas: grandes clásicos, obras más innovadoras -tanto artísticamente como técnicamente-, largometrajes de ficción o documentales, y producciones de casi todos los países, desde Sudáfrica a Marruecos o de Senegal a Etiopía. Es un cine de calidad que muestra el gran potencial creador y artístico de los cineastas africanos y que, poco a poco, va ganando seguidores en España y creando en nuestro país una visión diferente sobre el arte y la realidad del continente negro.

El FCAT nació en 2004 con el objetivo de dar a conocer en nuestro país una de las cinematografías menos conocidas del planeta, la africana, y, en tan solo ocho años, se ha convertido en un certamen de referencia a nivel internacional y en una cita imprescindible para aquellos que aman el cine y aman África.
