LCA 2012

The 2nd Lights, Camera, AFRICA! (LCA) Film Festival takes place in the vibrant city of Lagos, Nigeria, from 29th September to 1st October 2012.

Against a background of political movements, seismic and even incremental shifts across the African continent in the past year, we have witnessed a spreading spirit of community mobilisation, with the growth of ‘Occupy’ movements each one emboldening the ones that come after it.

This growing sense of urgency has fuelled the courage of ordinary citizens to actively participate in the change that proves to be inevitable. Shine Your Eye – a Nigerian pidgin English phrase means to encourage awareness – embodies the resolve of the active citizen asking questions, seeking answers and possessing their space.
