Distribution - In Brief

Distribution

- Afrika Eye film festival which took place at Bristol’s Watershed over 28th-30th October 2011, showing films from Africa and the African Diaspora was a resounding success with most of the films on the first two days selling out. Afrika Eye also held screenings at community venues across Bristol during the month of October – from the Methodist Church in Westbury on Trim to the Malcolm X Centre in St Paul’s, and 930 people from all ages and walks of life watched African cinema during the wider month-long festival.  Audience numbers reached unprecedented levels with a 36% increase in attendance figures this year.
