African Women Filmmakers and Curators in a Changing Industry


In the dynamic realm of African cinema, numerous entities, ranging from international film funds to festivals and decision-makers, proclaim their support. However, an essential question arises: How do African women filmmakers and curators sustain themselves on a daily basis and in the long term? This panel delves into the multifaceted journey of African women in the industry, exploring their struggles, triumphs, and the pursuit of a distinctive and recognizable voice in a White Male-Dominated Industry. How do African women curators secure funding in an industry dominated by white men? What strategies, networks, and partnerships can empower African women curators in this context?

With Jacqueline Nsiah, Dr. Ezinne Ezepue, Ramat Musa, Aïcha Boro & Dyana Gaye

In cooperation with ifs Internationale Filmschule Köln, KIOSK – Arts Exchange e. V.
