CAFF presents 'Visions to be Heard: Empowering Young Africans through Film'
CAFF and events like this are said to be important because mainstream media portrayals of Africa have tended to forge a limited perception of this diverse continent. This perception is largely the result of narratives emerging through the 'Western eye', because of the inequity of opportunities of production and distribution of films made in Africa by Africans.
This selection of short films, made in a participatory manner, strives to challenge these narratives, and give voice to those who have a right to be heard. Each of the projects featured, though in different locations, shares a commitment to empowering young Africans through film.
The event is free, however, donations are welcome to help support CAFF. For more, go to www.cambridgeafricanfilmfestival.org.uk.
