AiM Call for Submissions: Features and Shorts
AiM is currently accepting film submissions - features, documentaries and shorts - for its 2012 festival edition, which will take place from 25 Oct to 2 Nov 2012 at Filmhouse Cinema in Edinburgh. AiM 2012 is focusing its programme on films and events that represent Africa as part and parcel of the modern, globalised world; and will be seeking to discover and explore - through film and other popular culture manifestations - how modernity manifests in African cultures.
