IRep International Film Festival 2013 is conceptualized on the framework: AFRICA IN SELF CONVERSATION and it would explore the theme: “RECONNECTIONS” According to their website:
In its years of existence, Africa has worn many faces and has assumed many identities; most of them imposed by outsiders looking in. What then is the true definition of an African, what parameters can be used to define the African? Is it our values, cultures or our religion?
How do Africans at home and in the Diaspora see or think about themselves and their identity? What impact does western education; religious and economic value systems have on African socio-cultural life — for instance in creating in the African a conflict of identity?
There will also be a training for those interested in film and art, and it is free. More details on registration here. For more information, please email: email@example.com
