Following France-Atlanta’s tradition to promote groundbreaking and innovative movies from Africa and the African diaspora, this year’s edition will host another African Film Series, featuring a selection of films from the Institut Français’ Cinémathèque Afrique. As part of a focus on up-and-coming filmmakers, a special guest will participe in the 2016 African Film Series and present his/her work in a series of talks and screenings (TBA).
The African Film Library contributes to the conservation of African heritage with a digitalization program, and conducts retrospectives (Sotigui Kouyate, Raoul Peck) and themed cycles (“The great figures of African film and the Caribbean”; “African Independence”) destined for worldwide distribution.
Presented by the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France to the United State in partnership with Institut français, Cinémathèque Afrique.
