We are very excited to announce two major projects that we are running throughout 2014!
In June and July we will be working in partnership with Glasgow 2014 and Creative Scotland to hold a tour across Scotland entitled "Sports Stories from around the African Commonwealth" that is set to take place in the run up to and during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. This touring film festival will explore African sports and culture through film. It will take viewers on a journey through the African Commonwealth highlighting triumphs and key challenges through sports. The tour will take place right across Scotland and include pop-up screenings through our ‘AiM Shebeen Screen’, bike-powered screenings, dine and view evenings and much more. The programme will be launched at the end of April so watch this space for updates.
During the second half of the year we will plan the 9th edition of the annual Africa in Motion Film Festival to take place end of Oct/early Nov. This year's festival will have a main focus on South Africa, as this year marks the 20th year of democracy and freedom in South Africa. To celebrate we will be working with a number of different partners to programme a strand of South African films, events and discussions. Through film, music and live performance we will reflect on the role resistance movements played in the struggle for freedom in South Africa, the great achievements made since 1994, and also the continued struggles for peace, democracy, equality and freedom.
