Afrika Eye Film Festival

Through the power of film, visual & performing arts, Afrika Eye promotes the richness and diversity of Africa and its diaspora.

Our annual festival offers opportunities for audiences of all ages to engage with film that focuses on the lives of people throughout the continent of Africa and beyond and take part in post-screening panel discussions. We also offer a weekend of workshops with international artists, performers and musicians.

We combine the medium of film with related arts to challenge the stereotypes, dispel the myths and explore the traditions and transformations in an ever-changing social and political landscape.

Watershed is the home of our three day festival with our outreach programme reaching deep into local communities in Bristol.

Our programme includes:

– Film screenings with wide ranging content from established directors and producers to emerging newcomers in the industry
– Community outreach performances, workshops and masterclasses
– Children’s animation
– Eyeful – African shorts competition
– Visiting speakers – directors, producers, artists/ actors
– Panel discussions
– Networking opportunities
– Partnerships with universities and community organisations
– Volunteering & trainee opportunities
– Mentoring
