African Diaspora Cinema

Screening event of a selection from African Diaspora Cinema collected by Fide Dayo and Villa Romana, Florence

Talk Angelika Stepken Villa Romana

Mission: Founded in 2013 by the African/Italian filmmaker Fide Dayo, ADCF’s vision is to raise awareness about African Cinema, its vast potentials and the socio-economic impact it has not only on African economies but gradually expanding to other parts of the world’s economy as well. Our aim is to use cinema to create a revolution that will change the social and economical horizon of Africa. Stop Human Trafficking is the theme of the African Diaspora Cinema Festival, a theme that draws on the principle that being African is a bond that goes beyond geography, birth or lineage; as people of African origin are spread across the globe and Africa is also proud home to many non-Africans. Africa has been able to capture the world’s attention through its ancient cultural heritage. With films it will have the power to connect people from around the world.

Motivation: Film is a powerful platform that is able to attract and engage people in constructive activity and providing enjoyment, enlivening spaces, and enriching lives. Film and art can lead to a better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse culture. ADCF is rising from the ashes in a difficult moment in which corps of thousands of Africans flow like water in the Mediterranean Sea. In a moment of racial intolerance, in a moment people are not only rebelling about the lack of jobs, but equal opportunity and fairness before the law. Also in a moment our stories are not being heard nor told in public spaces.
