In 2012 we opened with the moving award-winning film about economic migrants from Senegal LA PIROGUE

Saturday morning saw hugely oversubscribed children’s workshops in Jamaican dance and mask making – but we managed to squeeze everyone in. It culminated in a huge street procession all round the docks.

Better Mus Come, a new film from Jamaica that explored the roots of violence through a love story opened with a live performance by the glorious Tan Teddy traditional Jamaican choir

The Fade, a documentary about black barbers all over the world, gave away a free haircut to a lucky prizewinner

State of Mind and Weapon of War were two films about healing trauma. A panel of experts held a lively discussion with a very full house.

We closed with the uplifting Kinshasa Symphony.
