AFRIKA EYE IS BACK!
We are so excited. After nearly two years of waiting and hoping, Afrika Eye is back screening to live audiences once again from 8th – 16th November, with a programme of films, telling stories of lives lived, lives imagined and all the bits in between.
This year we’re delighted to announce new partnerships with Sheba Soul, Rising Arts, Kiki, Queer Vision, The Curzon Clevedon and Felix Road Adventure Playground, with remarkable films both new and from the archives. As always there’ll be post screening discussions, Q&A’s and conversations.
Afrika Eye will celebrate filmmakers who are bringing important issues to our attention as well as the extraordinary achievements that ordinary people across Africa and around the world are making every day.
Find out what Afrika Eye has been doing during lockdown, with the very first screening of our home-grown documentary ‘Rooted in Bristol’ with stories from people of African heritage, working their plots on the allotments of Bristol.
We aim to reach more communities than ever before. As well as our annual outing at Watershed, we’ll be screening at Easton Community Centre, The Curzon, Clevedon, The Cube and The Old Picture House, Totterdown, plus a pop-up event for families at Felix Road Adventure Playground with a movie and storytelling.
Please come and be part of our first live festival since 2019. We can’t wait to meet up with old friends and welcome new faces.
