The Africa Centre has partnered with Cinewax and Online African Film Festival (OAFF), an online platform that promotes African & diaspora films throughout the year, to offer a thrilling selection of African short films between 25 October and 1 November 2020.


OAFF’s mission is to share authentic African stories to the global diaspora community and to help amplify the voices and narratives of African creatives. Together, we have curated the following five short films for this Black History Month:


        1. Once an Old Lady Sat on My Chest
        2. ZOO
        3. Mansa: an Ode to Self Exploration
        4. Meduse, Afro Hair and Other Myths
        5. The Good Son

The above films will be available for FREE and we will be sharing more about each film throughout the week between 25 October – 1 November.

Also, as part of our partnership with Cinewax, all our audiences can use the promo code: AFRC30BHM on the Cinewax website to get 30% off OAFF’s regular monthly fee of £8 for 6 months.
