WE ARE ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2018 EDITION OF WATCH-AFRICA
At Watch Africa, we accept entries from African filmmakers based on the continent and the Diaspora as well as filmmakers of African descent. Priority is given to African filmmakers because we wish to support, promote and celebrate filmmakers from the continent and its Diaspora. Only in exceptional circumstances would we screen a film made by a non-African. In this case, the film must be about Africa or Africans.
There is no entry fee.
The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2018.
We accept films of any genre, any theme and shot in any format.
Only short films made in 2018 or after will be considered. Watch Africa will not pay any screening fees for short films screened at the Festival.
We will consider feature films made before 2018.
