Africa in Motion Film Festival

UK
Festival Manager/Curator

 

Africa in Motion (AiM) Film Festival is an annual African film festival taking place in Edinburgh and Glasgow, now in its ninth year, comprising of film screenings and complementary events. Over the last nine years AiM has established itself as one of the largest African film festivals in the UK, showing African films that would not typically be shown in Scotland, thus expanding audience choice and exposing cinemagoers to new genres of film.

The main aims of the festival have been, since its inception, 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. We believe that the best way to learn about Africa is to listen to African voices and to view representations created by Africans themselves, as these often counter Africa in mainstream media in the West.

Natalia was part of the managerial and directorial team between 2010 – 2014.
