While DIFF prides itself on its role in nurturing talent in acting and filmmaking it also ensures that African films have their place internationally.
Next year’s festival will be a little different where people will not crowd as much as usual due to the conditions to prevent the spread of Corona virus so only a few films will be selected and shown.
Filmmakers are encouraged to talk about the different ways in which we have been forced to change lifestyles for this year’s theme if ‘Adaptation’ is to accept the situation.
The 2022 Festival is looking for films that touch on the past and future, highlighting the continuation of ancient African stories that have a global perspective on sustainability and inclusiveness.
Such films can be about immigration, climate change, social isolation, inclusiveness and films that highlight how humanity or humanity has expanded.
