The best documentaries from Africa and across the world will soon be showing on BET Africa.


AfriDocs is an extensive library of African and international documentaries which will be aired every Sunday evening from February 5.

AfriDocs documentaries are created for film buffs, lovers of African stories and culture, activists and anyone with a passion for powerful and real stories.

Since its inception in 2014, AfriDocs has presented over 150 documentaries, including powerful environmental documentary Virunga, Rehad Desai’s award-winning Miners Shot Down, Nas Jones’ Shake the Dust dance documentary, and Nigerian film, The Supreme Price.


The documentary strand has also won international acclaims such as the Academy Award for CitizenFour (the Edward Snowden story), the Academy Award-nominated The Act of Killing, the SAFTA winning The Dream of Shahrazad, and many others.

“We look forward to rounding out our factual content offering, and illuminating and entertaining our Sunday night audiences thanks to AfriDocs’ intelligent, thought-provoking and stimulating documentary titles,” said Monde Twala, vice president, BET, Youth & Music, Viacom International.

AfriDocs on BET will  have special themes on a monthly basis, such as Human Rights Month, Music Month, and Women’s Month.
