HISTORY OF AFRICAN CINEMA

African Cinema (according to Wikipedia) is film production in Africa and it dates back to the early 20th century, when film reels were the primary cinematic technology in use. Africa used to be represented by western filmmakers during the colonial era. The continent was portrayed as an exotic land without history or culture.
The French colonies legally prohibited African from making films of their own. The ban stunted the growth of film as means for Africans to express themselves politically, culturally and artistically.
Most films prior to independence were egregiously racist in nature, African filmmakers of the independence era such as Ousmane Sembene and Oumarou Ganda, among others saw filmmaking as an important political tool for rectifying the erroneous image of Africans put forward by western filmmakers and for reclaiming the image of Africa by Africans.

PAN-AFRICAN FILM CONSORTIUM PRESENTS THE WORLD CONFERENCE ON AFRICAN CINEMA

Building on the urgent need to strengthen the African creative sectors and Pan-African Film Consortium’s unique mandate on culture promotion through film, education, exhibition, information and communication for individuals in the film industry globally, with special focus on Africa, the AFC in partnership with the Rwanda Film Federation will be hosting a world conference on African Cinema in Kigali, on the 11th and 12th of March 2016.

The main objective is to promote film ventures and ideas by African filmmakers, while encouraging government and private sectors to take concrete measures towards empowering professionals in the film industry. The two days conference will have eight sessions of panel discussions and the sharing of success stories on the use of film to support employment and advocate for peace in Africa.

Film experts, filmmakers, journalists, critics, investors, government representatives, policy makers, distributors and representatives of film festivals from across the continent and Diaspora will attend to the conference.
The conference will be committed to the development and implementation of an Action Plan that will guide stakeholders and policy makers for the realization of a Pan-African film industry that is sustainable and will support the African Union’s role of developing the creative industry for human progress and economic benefits.
