The 2019 Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!! Film Festival is set for its ninth edition with this year’s theme set as “Tales By Moonlight”. The event will hold from 27th to 29th September 2019 at the Agip Hall, MUSON Centre, Lagos.
LCA is proud to once again share exciting and forward-looking films from within the African continent and the diaspora, but this time, invoking the childhood tableau of the night-time story to entertain, thrill, delight and teach.
This year’s theme, Tales by Moonlight, harks back to one of the earliest art forms – storytelling, as this medium has been used to teach and learn, for self-preservation for so long.
This year’s films are presented as lines drawn in the global narrative, going back and pushing forward – all the time telling a tale. The theme situates the art form in an idyllic format, a common space and an open world in which stories and indeed life lessons are communally shared. These sub-themes speak to the underpinning philosophies at Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!!
Festival Director, Ugoma Adegoke stresses, “This year’s festival demonstrates our intention to host an edition that articulates film as visual and potent storytelling that keeps us connected with the past, and enabled for the future”.
Drawing on continuing and supportive friendships and longstanding corporate partnerships, the festival is proud to be able to sustain its commitment to fulfilling its mission of maintaining an open dialogue throughout the world of African film.
Numerous films over three days at the Musical Society of Nigeria (MUSON), Onikan covering various genres including documentary, features and shorts are just a segment of the festival experience that is lined up. There will also be special musical presentations and learning platforms for filmmakers and ancillaries of the local film ecosystem, which speak to the 2019 theme.
