2022 Festival

Welcome to the 17th edition of Africa in Motion!

The festival will run both in-person and online from 11 to 20 November 2022, with most films available for the duration of the festival. Once an audience member presses 'play' the film will be available for 48 hours playable directly on the Africa in Motion Eventive platform after which, access to the film will expire. Most of the films in the programme are geo-blocked to the UK only.

To inspire exploration and discovery, the festival has programmed special programmes including a guest-curated Nollywood presentation, fresh restorations of African archive works, a programme marking important anniversaries in the Punk music scene, the second instalment of our new year-round event series Coconut & Cane, and Q&As foregrounding distinguished African talent. Whilst initiating difficult and necessary conversations, we also look forward to centring joy and healing at the heart of our work with the introduction of a new focus on the wellbeing of our audience.
