Galway African Film Festival 2012

By Galway African Film Festival


Do you like movies?

We do - especially African movies which is why we set up the Galway African Film Festival, one of only two African Film Festivals in Ireland.
Why do we like African film? Probably because we are tired of seeing Africa always in a negative light, but more so because there is so much talent among African Directors and Actors that it would be a shame to miss! This year sees our fifth festival of which we are very proud as we have been running it on a shoestring budget and still managed to show award-winning movies from countries as diverse as South Africa, Egypt Nigeria and Kenya.

We are looking for financial support to screen at least 6 feature films plus a number of documentaries and shorts (screening rights are about 400 euro per feature film, less for documentaries and shorts) - the more money we have the more films we can show!

Apart from financial support we would also very much welcome your input into the choice of films we hope to screen - and we have pulled together a list of potential movies on our website. We hope that you will visit and leave comments as to which films you would like to see and we will do our best to acquire the screening rights for them.

The African Film Festival takes place annually in May to coincide with Africa Day (May 25th).

We are also hoping to invite two guests to the festival (in previous years these have included Keith Shiri, formerly director of the Africa at the Pictures festival in London, Tendeka Matatu, producer of Jerusalema, South Africa and Alex Ogou, actor, Ivory Coast).

So if you want to support something a bit different to what the mainstream is showing, please donate! We will keep you updated on how the project is going and you'll be the first to know the final line-up! Apart from our eternal gratitute we will also offer you some very special rewards ... :-)
