Description

Africa in Motion (AiM) Film Festival, now going into its seventh year, is an African film festival which takes place annually in October and November and is hosted at Filmhouse Cinema (Edinburgh's premier independent cinema) and other venues. The main goals of AiM are to introduce Scottish audiences to the brilliance of African cinema and to overcome the under-representation and marginalisation of African film in British film-going culture. Our priority is to create opportunities for Scottish audiences to see African films while providing a platform for African filmmakers to exhibit their work in Scotland, and in that way change perceptions of Africa. But our main reason for screening the films is because we believe they are great films which should be seen the world over. Over the past six years we have screened over 200 African films to audiences totalling around 15,000 people!
