A note, a beat, rhythm, harmony, a melody, a tune… Music!
This September, the “Lights, Camera, Africa” Film Festival brings to audiences an offering of films with the theme ‘Music Makes the People…’
The three day festival is an unabashed display of works of film that speak to the power of music and indeed other art forms to create love, express sorrow, build bridges and end wars. It is a feast that is dedicated to screening the very best of emerging, fresh, independent African cinema and in particular celebrating the musical voice of film.
The “Lights, Camera, Africa” Film Festival, through its consistently bold representation of diverse African cinema, shares its sixth edition with a theme that is perhaps the most appropriate motifs for its native city; Lagos.
Featuring the famous Festival Souk, inter-disciplinary showcases of literature, visual art and live music, the festival promises to be one of a lifetime.
