Looking for a fun way to spend your Independence day holiday in Lagos this year? I highly recommend that you check out 6th edition of The Lights Camera Africa film Festival that is taking place on Friday 30th September till Sunday October 2nd 2016 at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island.
The Lights, Camera, Africa Film Festival was conceived in 2011 to motivate debates on issues and experiences that are rooted in the African experience. The festival has grown from strength to strength each year. It has evolved from its humble beginnings from The Life House Lagos, a virtual conference centre to its grand stage at the Federal Palace Hotel where up-and-coming and established filmmakers get an opportunity to showcase their latest works.
The festival is annually held in Lagos, Nigeria and it displays an incredible range of African and independent productions. This includes documentaries, short films, feature length movies, animated features that showcase the talent of the emerging African entertainment industry.
In addition, to great independent features, Lights, Camera, Africa also hosts a number of workshops, seminars and talks for the curious minds that have a great or fleeting interest in the industry.
This year’s edition will feature 23 movies from 14 different nations with the theme “Music Makes the People…”. Many of this year’s productions will use the power of music to invoke a range of emotions like love, sorrow, happiness .The festival is shaping an unforgettable one.
