Africa in Motion is Scotland’s major annual celebration of African cinema, and is delighted to return for the 13th year to bring audiences in Edinburgh and Glasgow a wide variety of creative stories from across the African continent.
As the festival hits its teenage years the theme this year is rebellion. From political and resistance movements, coming-of-age dramas, and representations of youth and popular culture, to rebelling against the dominant image or narrative of Africa, this will be an all-encompassing theme.
Principal funder: The National Lottery through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund
