We provide distinctive and innovative programmes of the best films from North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. We have an extensive database of titles and a strong network of contacts, which allows us to curate works by emerging and established filmmakers.
Film has the ability to touch us in a powerful way. The sharing of culture, through film viewing and through the exchange of experiences and ideas, can facilitate knowledge, encourage understanding and foster tolerance. It is this power, this possibility of openness to new ways of seeing and being, that we strive to cultivate. Here is more information about us.
Rosa Abidi has authored a number of film reviews some of which can be read here. She is currently working on a book on Maghrebi cinema.
