Event Details

The Life House proudly presents the fourth edition of the Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival, which shares with Lagosians the best and most original works coming out of African cinema.

Created in 2011 the festival will once again hold over the Independence Day holidays from Friday, 26 September to Wednesday, 1 October 2014 at the FEDERAL PALACE HOTEL in Lagos.

Embracing the theme LEGACY, this latest edition of Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival 2014 celebrates the continent’s rich film-making tradition, connecting the classics to the avant-gardists in an audio-visual history that spans the times and genres.

This year, Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival celebrates many firsts! It’s the first time special focus will be paid to television, our first 7-day festival, and our first international outpost screening event tagged 'The Heart and Light of LCA 2014' which will allow audiences in London or New York to enjoy our selection also in October 2014.

We are proud to leverage old and new partnerships with a number of organizations including the acclaimed African Film Festival, New York (AFF), the British Council, Alliance Française and Goethe Institut. We are also happy to deepen our personal alliances with the likes of Nadia Denton, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, Tunde Kelani, Femi Odugbemi and Chika Anadu.
