The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) is the ultimate gathering of original storytellers and audiences seeking new voices in Cinema and fresh filmmaking perspectives. Our annual program includes dramatic, documentaries, features, and short films; showcasing new creators, emerging trends in storytelling, and cinematic expression from talents in Africa and the diaspora.
In 2022, in its 11th season, with the theme ‘Indigenous for Global” AFRIFF will explore our indigenous content and the key ingredients required to take it to a global audience. With the unstoppable advent of the big streaming services, it’s imperative to deliberately energize the ‘Indigenous for Global Agenda’ to establish how local stories can reach and connect with global audiences.
AFRIFF 2022 will be held at the Landmark Centre, Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria.
AFRIFF 2022 program is divided into various streams taking place sometimes simultaneously throughout the day.
