The Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival is calling for entries for the official selection to its 5th festival edition holding from 30 September to 4 October 2015. In its landmark fifth year under the title Future Forward , Lights, Camera Africa!!! Film Festival calls for bold and energetic pieces of African and independent cinema that portray the intrepid spirit that characterises the force that propels us, feeds the imperative to go forth with certainty and to succeed.
This spirit is illustrated on the continent through constant movement in various fields
of endeavour. This movement is marked by a purposeful quest for achieving a higher
self. It is illustrated by a country that has elected a new political dispensation.
This spirit is what The Life House continues to be inspired by as curtains close on a
half-decade and open for a new one. It is not the end of an era but the
commemoration of an epoch in which we have illuminated Lagos and in turn have
been invigorated repeatedly by the energy, the dynamism & the essence of the city.
This is why we are who we are and do what we do…and this is what we celebrate
In a year fraught with race problems, migratory issues and resurgent fundamentalism,
there is reason to acknowledge the problems and yet celebrate the human spirit and
resilience – the courage to strive, the capacity to thrive. It is our world and we are the
world’s future. The present is far from ideal but true to the resilient human spirit we
WILL forge forward…Future Forward!
Excited and hopeful for the future, this year also You can download the call for entries here here for more information visit www.lightscameraafrica.com
