Africa in Motion Film Festival 2013
24 October to 3 November
Twende! Africa on the Move
Welcome to the 8th edition of the Africa in Motion Film Festival.
We have brought to Scotland a fantastic showcase of awe-inspiring films from across the African continent. We'll take you on a cinematic journey to discover how Africans see themselves in the world we all share. Following the spirit of Africa we will travel across forgotten Kingdoms, follow Islamic pilgrimages, see the life-changing effects of revolutions and reimagine notions of what it means to be African in the modern world.
Our festival theme for 2013 is Twende: Africa on the Move (“twende” is a Swahili word which translates as “let’s go!”), capturing Africa’s diverse richness and beauty through movement. Using this overarching theme we have devised a programme that encapsulates all types of movement.
The films are grouped into twelve different strands.
The link between movement, film and culture is brought to the fore through our programme of films, symposiums, distribution forums and through our Nomad Cinema series, educational workshops, music performances and arts exhibitions. We hope you enjoy the journey.
