This discussion will explore current trends in the production, distribution and curation of documentaries from Africa. What kinds of films are being made on the continent, and by whom? And how does content, form, production and consumption differ regionally? Who are the local and international audiences these films are being made for, and how are they responding to films? We look at the role of international funding and co-prodcution on what is being made, at what buyers and festivals are taking on board, and at what critics and journalists are writing about.
