Africa in Motion Film Competition

Africa in Motion is an audience-based festival, founded in 2006 by African film researcher Lizelle Bisschoff. The main aims of the festival have been, since its inception, to introduce Scottish audiences to the brilliance of African cinema and to overcome the under-representation and marginalisation of African film in British film-going culture.

Africa in Motion believes that the best way to learn about Africa is to listen to African voices and to view representations created by African themselves, as these often counter the stereotypical representations seen from Africa in mainstream media in the West. Over the past eight years, Africa in Motion has screened close to 400 African films to audiences totalling around 25,000 people!
