Friday, September 30th through Sunday, October 2nd, 2011, African Film Festival, Inc. and the Reel Life Film Club at The Life House will collaboratively present Lights, Camera, Africa! 2011 – a film festival showcasing some of the most exciting and original films of African cinema.

The series will take place in Lagos, Nigeria at The Life House and other locations in the surrounding area. The Lights, Camera, Africa! 2011 Film Festival aims to stimulate discourse on issues and experiences that are rooted in the African experience. In this way, African stories will also be consumed by those who live them.

This year’s inaugural theme is centered on the heady days of colonial Africa and the continent’s response to post-colonial challenges in more recent times. The line-up of films includes documentaries, features and shorts. The works come from all over the continent and the Diaspora and address a wide range of issues, including: the environment, traditionalism, spirituality, immigration, entrepreneurship and not least, independence.
