We are delighted to be partnering for the first time with Film Africa - London's biggest celebration of African cinema brought to you by the Royal African Society - to host two shorts programmes of the 10 titles vying for this year's Baobab Award for Best Short Film. Established in 2011, the Baobab Award exists to recognise and support emerging filmmaking across Africa and its diaspora. This first programme featuring five award-nominees includes My Love, Ethiopia that follows the turbulent and mystical journey of a young girl searching for freedom after being separated from her family; and DỌLÁPỌ̀ IS FINE, a coming-of-age story from the UK that is woven around the politics of hair and identity.
