Film Preview: Africa in Motion, 23 Oct – 2 Nov, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

12 Oct

Africa in Motion returns to Edinburgh’s Filmhouse on Thursday 23 October until Sunday 2 November with an impressive collection of 31 films accompanied by a great line-up of discussions and Q&A sessions.

Opening with The Land, a classic from Egyptian director Youssef Chahine and continuing with some prime examples of ‘Nollywood’, the prolific Nigerian video industry which has taken the continent by storm over the last decade, this looks to have something for everyone.

To explain the festival in more detail is Lizelle Bisschoff, Festival Director
, in a short video created by the Filmhouse:
