African filmsWith sponsorship from Yokohama City and special co-operation from the South African Embassy in Japan, the Cinema Africa Committee is holding the Cinema Africa Special Screening sessions in Yokohama City. They are showing genuine African films produced by African film makers.

Part 1 of the screening took place on 12th and 13th June at the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse’s event space (Naka-ku, Yokohama City), as a part of African Festa 2010, hosted by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.

Part 2 will take place today and tomorrow (19th and 20th June) in Yokohama Landmark Hall (Nishi-ku, Yokohama City). The Landmark Hall is only a 3 minute walk from Minato-Mirai Station (Minato-Mirai Line) and 5 minute walk from JR Sakuragicho Station.

The entry fee is 800 Yen per day. If you are in the Kanto area (Japan) and you want to watch these African films, you can get in touch with me and I will ask the organizers to give you a discount. For more information about the films that they are showing, follow this link.
