Yesterday, Tuesday, the second edition of the Equatorial Guinea African Film Festival was officially inaugurated.  It´s organised by the Spanish Cultural Centres of Malabo and Bata, Casa África and the Tarifa African Film Festival.

As of today, Wednesday, the Festival takes the streets by visiting various schools in Malabo by the hand of the Kenyan director Hawa Essuman and her film titled Soul Boy. In the upcoming days, the Festival will experience an intense moment with the recovery of the historic Cine Marfil cinema for showing films, as it has not been used as a cinema in the last 20 years.

The inauguration of the 2nd Equatorial Guinea African Film Festival was attended by the Spanish ambassador in Equatorial Guinea, Manuel Gómez Acebo; the director of the Tarifa African Film Festival, Mane Cisneros, and the general director of Casa África, Ricardo Martínez Vázquez. Representing the government of Equatorial Guinea were the Secretary of State for Libraries, Archives, Museums and Cinemas, Guillermina Mekuy Mba Obono, and the Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Jerónimo Osa Osa Ecoro.

Yesterday, the ambassador and the general director of Casa África, Ricardo Martínez, recalled that 2011 is an important year for Equatorial Guinea, which will assume its turn for the presidency of the African Union as well as host the summit for the Chiefs of State of the African Union.

The schedule of events for today includes the presentation, at the Spanish Cultural Centre in Malabo, of the Muñecos por el Desarrollo (Puppets for Development) project, an initiative in which Casa África participates and that consists of training television professionals of three African countries and three Central American nations in developing children´s programmes using puppets while conveying positive values of solidarity.
