Why Reset?

The imagined world order that predicted a safe and stable world appears to be experiencing fraught times. And despite the progress of humankind in all fields of endeavour, age-old fault lines in communities across the globe are becoming exposed.

Recognising the clashing civilisations, overturned norms, and emerging trends, the Lights Camera Africa!!! festival brings to its audiences a selection of films it hopes will encourage a contemplation of opportunities for a RESET of the weakening world order. These reflections are even more relevant in the festival’s home Nigeria which is again fighting a recurrent sectionalism.

This year’s festival presents a series of film works and conversations that examine these issues in various spheres – including politics, science and the arts. The programme not only provides a forum for discourse, it also provides entertainment for all of the family over its three-day run.

We hope you are as excited as we are about bringing the people of Lagos a wonderful screening programme dedicated to the best of independent and African film, as well as our family and industry-engaging offerings through discussions, talks and family-friendly programming.

Our very popular Festival Marketplace returns again this year as does our inter-disciplinary showcases of literature, visual art and live music during the 3-day cultural fiesta.

The Lights Camera Africa!!! Film Festival brings to audiences a strong programme for its 2017 edition, and is proud to continue what has become an enduring partnership with the African Film Festival New York . This partnership has at its core a mission to expose African and global audiences to good quality independent African cinema with a view to stimulating discourse on issues and experiences rooted in the African experience.
