Film Africa Festival 2016

Film Africa Festival (2016): The Royal African Society’s annual film festival returns to London for its sixth edition, bringing the best of contemporary cinema from across the continent and its diaspora. This year there will be 52 films from 22 African countries, including 33 UK and European premieres, with features, documentaries, experimental and short films that highlight the exciting period of growth and recognition that African cinema is currently enjoying.
