To launch the Humanitarian Centre’s new themed year ‘Empowered Voices’ 2014- 2015, we are collaborating with CAFF and the French Society (Trinity College) to produce a night of short films and a lively discussion panel. We are delighted to have a number of outstanding organisations joining us for the event, including:

Dominique Chadwick (Social Films, Ghana-UK), Brooks Marmon (The Accountability Film School, Liberia), Laurinda Luffman (Our Africa), and Joshua McNamara (Slum Film Festival)

Mainstream media portrayals of Africa have tended to forge a limited perception of this very diverse continent. This perception is largely the result of narratives emerging through the ‘Western eye’, because of the inequity of opportunities of production and distribution of films made in Africa by Africans. This selection of short films, made in a participatory manner, strives to challenge these narratives, and give voice to those who have a right to be heard. Each of the projects featured, though in different locations, shares a commitment to empowering young Africans through film.

The event is FREE ; however, donations are welcome to help support CAFF .

There is also a facebook event, so please check it out, and share it with your friends, college and course mates.

This talk is part of the Empowered Voices Year series.
