Africa Film Festival

Best of Africa Film Festival Cologne

For the fifth time we have the opportunity to show films of the Africa Film Festival Cologne in cooperation with Checkpoint Afrika and Afrikanische Perspektiven. This year we are also happy to be guests of the Filmfestival Münster. For one week we will show new feature films, documentaries, long and short films at the Schloßtheater. We are expecting guests for four programs. For the first time, Ethel Assiobo has co-curated the Münster program and will also host film discussions.

We hope you will enjoy! Die Linsen
