Afrika Eye is an annual film and arts festival in Bristol. It is the South West’s biggest celebration of African cinema and culture. Our Festival brings films and diverse perspectives on Africa and the African diaspora to growing audiences in Bristol and the South West. We combine the medium of film with related arts to challenge the stereotypes, dispel the myths and explore the traditions and transformations in the ever-changing social and political landscape across this vast continent.
Our film and arts events run across Bristol through October, culminating in our Film Festival weekend at Watershed. We welcome acclaimed filmmakers, industry and subject experts at Q&A and panel discussions, giving our audiences the chance to delve deep into the subject matter and the filmmaking processes. Alongside our films, we have live music, family workshops and talks and our Opening Night Parties bring internationally renowned artists to an intimate setting in Watershed bar.
