director of galway african film festival since 2008
The Galway African Film Festival is a small festival screening the very best in African Cinema. As such it aims to:
- provide an alternative to mainstream films & cinema
- provide different perspectives on Africa for an Irish audience
- provide access to African movies for people in Ireland
- challenge the idea that ‘mainstream’ = ‘white’
I am particularly interested to link up with directors and producers of African and African diaspora films - and anybody who might be interested in / has ideas of how to fund our film festival, making it bigger and better!
