Join us for the Lights, Camera, Africa Film Festival starting from Wednesday, 30 September to Sunday, 4 October 2015 at Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
In a rousing fifth year, the Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival presents this year’s festival under the title, Future Forward.
Future Forward is an assembly of bold and energetic pieces of African and independent cinema that portray the intrepid spirit that characterizes the force that propels us and feeds our imperative to go forth, with certainty and to succeed.
Excited and hopeful for the future, this year also marks a turning point for the Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival as it gathers stories from its own journey over the last few years and projects into another phase in its growth. We consider Future Forward a metaphor for the festival. We implore you to look very much forward to a wonderful screening programme dedicated to the best of independent African film as well as our family and educational offerings through workshops, panel discussions, talks and family-friendly programming. Plus, you can expect visual, literature and musical showcases, fun after-parties and the very popular Festival Souk during our 5-day fiesta.
LCA will also celebrate scholars, directors and personalities like Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, Tunde Kelani, Toni Kan, Ed Keazor, Chika Anadu, Sandra Krampelhuber, Ebele Okoye, Shaibu Husseini, O.C Ukeje, and Jahman Anikulapo. We are also excited about the possibilites for cultural exchange from our friendships with the Dutch, German, French and Italian diplomatic missions, long-time enablers of independent African cinema.
