The Industry Forum is presented in partnership with the British Council.

Film Africa brings together key industry experts from Africa and the UK to discuss the role and importance of film archives in this all-day forum. At a time when exciting new initiatives are emerging across Africa, we will look at the challenges and opportunities in developing a film archive and explore how these resources can be best utilised by contemporary filmmakers. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to pitch their creative ideas to a panel of experts in The Restless Pitch, our closing session.


Film Africa is the Royal African Society’s  annual festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent. Launched in 2011, Film Africa is now the UK’s largest festival of African film and culture. Every year, Film Africa brings London audiences a core programme of fiction and documentary films alongside a vibrant series of accompanying events, including director Q&As, panel discussions, talks, workshops, master classes, family activities and Film Africa LIVE! music nights.
