A warm welcome to the 6h Africa International Film Festival. Our programme selection in this edition not only continues to celebrate African cinema’s achievements in compelling story telling but also its visibility and remarkable achievement in reaching out and engaging the rest of the world. The theme for AFRIFF 2016 is Embracing the world.

The quality of movies coming out of Africa today has been widely celebrated as evident on TIFF 2016 Lagos spotlight and the Beyond Nollywood feature at the BFI London Film festival. It therefore gives us great pleasure to present this year’s programme featuring 150 films from over 40 countries across Africa and the rest of the world.  

2016 Jury

AFRIFF is where every filmmaker and movie lover can get the utmost film experience!
