In its twelve-year run, the African Film Festival has carved out an important place in the St. Louis’ and Washington University’s film scenes. This year, the festival will continue its traditional three-day programming of contemporary African films starting March 31.
Washington University’s African Film Festival celebrated its 11th year of spotlighting African cinema and transporting American audiences to the beauty of Africa.
This coming weekend marks the ninth annual African Film Festival on Washington University’s campus, sponsored by the African and African-American studies and film and media studies departments, the African Students Association and the Brown School African Students Association. From March 28-30, films will be screened in Brown 100 starting at 7 p.m.
A selection of African films will be shown on campus Friday through Sunday as part of the eighth annual African Film Festival at Washington University. The festival was founded in 2006 by Wilmetta Toliver-Diallo, a professor in the African and African-American Studies department.
