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

Other funders: Film Hub Scotland; Young Start Big Lottery Fund; School of Arts and Humanities, University of Stirling; British Council; Glasgow Life; Alliance Francaise; Centre of African Studies, University of Edinburgh; Africa Week, University of Edinburgh; University of Glasgow Knowledge Exchange Fund; Voluntary Action Fund; Society
for Francophone Postcolonial Studies; Scottish Documentary Institute.
