Different perspectives from Africa: alternative views of the people and continent in films from African directors
Screenings include Nigerian film Phone Swap, Zambian short film Mwansa the Great, a collaborative documentary from Uganda and the US, Call me Kuchu, and many more.
From the 24th to the 26th of May, the Galway One World Centre welcomes one and all to enjoy the 6th Galway African Film Festival (GAFF). Screenings will take place at the Huston School of Film & Digital Media on Earl's Island near Galway Cathedral. It will present a series of contemporary African feature films, shorts, and documentaries, all of which will be free of charge. The full line-up can be found at www.galwayafricanfilmfestival.org.
The festival aims to showcase a variety of lived experiences throughout the African continent as explored by African directors, producers, and actors themselves. It shares the voices of African filmmakers who have a great deal more to say about the experiences, goals, and obstacles of their lives than mainstream cinema is able to depict.
The festival, which is one of only three African film festivals in Ireland, is organized by the Galway One World Centre in conjunction with the Galway Film Society and the Huston School of Film & Digital Media. It is supported by Irish Aid Africa Day, the Galway City Council, and access>CINEMA.
