Rotterdam Fest’s Africa Focus


The 39th International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), which takes place from 27 January to 7 February 2010, will include a major focus themed, “Where is Africa?’

IFFR maintains this is a more extensive programme devoted to independent African filmmaking than featured at any other Western film festival in recent years. It includes new short and feature length films, historical films, storyteller’s cinema, debates and a series of commissioned films by non-African filmmakers.

“Where is Africa?’ will focus on the filmmaking culture in sub-Saharan and central parts of Africa. It will include a series of events, presentations, performances, debates and screenings coordinated by the Amakula Kampala International Film Festival in Uganda.
