FILM FESTIVAL 2015
Afrika Eye – the South West’s biggest celebration of African cinema and culture – returns to Watershed in November with a 10th anniversary edition that adds a festival song and African quilt auction to its traditional line-up of the best new and old Africa-related screenings, talks, debates, live music and participatory arts workshops. Our focus for 2015 is Senegal with the additional very topical theme of ‘migration’.
Celebrations start with a debut performance of our anniversary anthem sung by Jill Draper and the Afrika Eye choir, followed by a screening of the brilliant tragic-comedy ‘Hyenas’ from Senegal. Then it’s time to dance the night away Senegalese style at our after party with the highly rated singer and instrumentalist Amadou Diagne and Group Yakar.
