África Hoy: Cinenómada at the International Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2012

From the 19th to 21st March 2012 at CICCA
África Hoy: Cinenómada en el Festival de Cine de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2012

Casa África has been on Africa's and African people’s side since its creation, nearly five years ago. Among its challenges has been promoting awareness and bringing African films nearer to the public in our country and placing a special emphasis with the struggle against clichés and stereotypes that surround everything African.

Under the umbrella of the culture and development strategy of Spanish cooperation, one of the aims of our work with African films is translated into the support given to artists and producers to develop their cultural industries and their access to international markets, as another contribution to African development.

Since our start we have collaborated hand in hand with the African Film Festival of Córdoba – FCAT (located until last year in Tarifa) and its programme Cinenómada for the dissemination of African cinematography, as a response to the challenge of helping the Spanish public to discover and enjoy films made on the African continent by Africans.

In supporting films, Casa África enthusiastically joins up with the  International Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2012, a consolidated and internationally respected appointment that is not to be missed, with the seventh art of Europe, America and Asia and that, for the first time opens a window to the most up to date African cinema  with the section África Hoy.

In this 2012 edition we see collaboration between the Festival of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria and Casa África, which was talked about several years ago, due the closeness of their profiles and affinities. The cycle África Hoy is made up from a list of six films chosen by the Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria from a list of proposals undertaken by the African Film Festival of Córdoba under the aim of showing a smattering of the most innovative films being carried out in África.

These films can be seen at CICCA on 19th, 20th and 21st March. Two films will be shown daily, the first at 17:00h and the second at 19:00h following the programme below:

  • 19th March: Shirley Adams and Triomf
  • 20th March: Kinshasa Palace and Ashlaa
  • 21st March: Fissures and Microphone

With the collaboration of Filmoteca Canaria, the Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Cinenómada, the cycle África Hoy will also arrive in Tenerife and the same films can be seen at Aguere Espacio Cultural (Calle Herradores, 47. San Cristóbal de La Laguna) always at 20:00h and following the programme below:

  • 23rd March: Microphone
  • 24th March: Shirley Adams
  • 30th March: Ashlaa
  • 31st March: Kinshasa Palace
