In November 2014, the 3rd edition of the AfricanBamba Human Rights Film Festival will take place. This 5-day festival in Thiaroye, a large banlieue close to Dakar, consists of 16 film screenings and three debates about various topics such as the right to education and non-violence. In addition, an extensive entertainment programme is organised, with concerts and sport events. Around 5,000 visitors are expected.
To inform the audience about the festival, film screenings are scheduled at schools and universities in the months leading up to the festival. This 3rd edition will be named ‘Bollo’, which means ‘Community’ in Wolof. Movies that Matter also supported the first two editions of the festival.
