"The Africa in Motion film festival is a brilliant addition to Edinburgh's annual programme of festivals. Too often the common perception of Africa is a continent plagued by poverty and disease. It does face many, many challenges, but it also has wonderfully rich and diverse cultures, and I'm particularly pleased that Scotland provides this great showcase for African filmmakers."
Rt Hon Jack McConnell MSP, First Minister of Scotland (2001 - 2007)
"Live Aid was an entertainment format that was used to highlight the humanitarian issues in Africa through music. Now, through Africa in Motion some great African filmmakers are being given a long overdue opportunity to screen their work and tell their own through-provoking stories about Africa."
Midge Ure
"I am delighted that Edinburgh is home to Africa in Motion, the UK's biggest African film festival. This year's programme features films from nations all over the continent, and premieres for Scottish and UK audiences. As well as showcasing acclaimed African directors and supporting new filmmakers, Africa in Motion includes a whole range of events letting us all experience and celebrate African culture in all its varieties. That’s how we can build friendships across the world and reach mutual understanding and acceptance with other peoples."
Linda Fabiani MSP, Minister for Europe, External Affairs and Culture
