The ninth edition of Africa in Motion (AiM) took place from 24 October to 9 November 2014 in Glasgow and Edinburgh where 61 films were showcased to over 4800 people.
The AiM Short Film Competition 2014 had a competitive shortlist but after much deliberation, the jury chose Berea, directed by South African Vincent Moloi, as the overall winner. The film tells the story of an old Jewish man living in an apartment in inner-city Johannesburg, long after his friends and family have moved on, whose week revolves around the visit of a beautiful stranger.
The Audience Award for the Short Film Competition went to Adamt (Listen) directed by Zelalem Woldemariam, a previous AiM Short Film Competition Audience Award winner. The film is about a young Ethiopian composer and drummer who is struggling with a traumatic experience from his childhood.
