Welcome to the 4th edition of the Africa International Film Festival. We are once again gathering to celebrate the amazing energy African filmmakers are bringing to the screens with films that thrill, the films that take us on a journey and the films about love, respect and dignity.

Our selection this year is an array of feature films, some hard hitting documentaries and a generous selection of shorts representing over 20 countries from all the regions of Africa. Our Opening Night film is The Square, an Oscar nominated documentary by the Egyptian filmmaker Jehan Noujaim. This is a stunning film that charts the course of three years of Egyptian political upheaval that began 2011.
