The Lights Camera Africa Film Festival is set to return this year with a 3-day cultural event to celebrate independent African cinema.
The film festival is themed ‘RESET’.
It is scheduled to hold from September 29 to October 1 at the Federal Palace Hotel and Casino, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Light Camera Africa is aimed at creating a platform that encourages stimulating discourse on issues and experiences with family -friendly programming rooted in the African experience.
The seventh edition of this year’s festival will showcase to audiences, a reflective presentation of film works and conversations that examine issues in various spheres – including politics, science, arts, culture, and tradition – in order to identify the reflections that are more relevant in Nigeria.
Ugoma Adegoke, the founder, revealed that the festival’s core mission is to expose African and global audiences to good quality independent African content with a view to amplify and stimulate discourse about true experiences.
She said: “For the seventh edition this year, we are bringing to our audiences a strong programme that recognises trending issues and discussions in the public sphere, through which we believe the festival will highlight and encourage mutually respectful and logical conversations.
“In addition, we are using this opportunity to celebrate and continue all our enduring partnerships, especially with the African Film Festival, New York.”
