Annual Meeting Film Screening and Video Marketplace

Film Screening

The ASA Annual Meeting Film Screening event is an annual event, where films by renowned African producers are showcased during the Annual Meeting. These films typically engage major social and/or political issues on the African continent past or present, and are related to the theme of the conference in that given year. At the 2013 conference three films were shown at the Reginald Lewis Museum in Baltimore, entitled Tey by Alain Gomis, Something Necessary, by Judy Kibingeand Pumzi by Wanuri Kahiu. The screenings were followed by Q & A sessions with producers Alain Gomis and Judy Kibinge, who attended the event.

The 57th Annual Meeting Film Screening event will take place during the 2014 conference in Indianapolis, Indiana (venue to be determined). Films are currently not being accepted for the film screening event. If you would like to submit an application to have your film(s) tabled in the video marketplace, you may complete the tabled film application form and follow the instructions to submit your film(s) for display.
