Film Africa is the Royal African Society’s annual festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent. Launched in 2011, Film Africa is now the UK’s largest festival of African film and culture.

Every year, Film Africa brings London audiences a core programme of fiction and documentary films alongside
a vibrant series of accompanying events, including director Q&As, panel discussions, talks, workshops, master
classes, family activities and Film Africa LIVE! music nights.

Film Africa recognises and supports new talent through The Baobab Award for Best Short Film, which is judged by a panel of film professionals and offers the winner a £1,000 cash prize towards their next production.
