Some upcoming NYC screening events at BAMcinematek worth highlighting...

First... from April 10 - 12:

CINÉ FRANCE AFRIQUE presented by the Ghett’Out Film Festival

Special guests Charles Burnett, Sylvain George, Stéphane Elmadjian & Soufiane Adel

The Ghett’Out Film Festival comes to New York to spotlight independent French talents emerging on the outskirts of the classic system in France. Mostly self-educated and from diverse cultural backgrounds, these filmmakers are the pioneers of an underground Nouvelle Vague. Highlights include Alain Gomis’ festival favorite L’afrance (Sundance, Toronto, Locarno) and Djinn Carrenard’s French sensation Donoma (Cannes, New Directors/New Films) as well as Charles Burnett’s critically-acclaimed lost classic Killer of Sheep (1977), screening on Apr 10 and followed by a Q&A with the director. ALSO INCLUDES: The Lord’s Ride (2010, Hue), May They Rest in Revolt (2010, George), Slums Road (2011, May & Zouhani), plus a shorts program and post-screening discussion with directors Stéphane Elmadjian & Soufiane Adel.

And then from May 25 - 28:

FILMAFRICA Special guests Akin Omotoso & Daniel Cattier

This year’s cinematic companion to the 35th annual DanceAfrica 2012 features films from Algeria, Nigeria, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The series includes Lionel Rogosin’s recently re-released apartheid-era classic Come Back, Africa; a special children’s film screening in 3-D, Michel Ocelot’s Tales of the Night; and selections from the African Film Festival’s Traveling Series.

FILMS INCLUDE: Kinshasa Symphony (2010, Baer & Wischmann), Kongo: 50 Years of Independence in Congo (2010, Tilman, Cattier, Bastin & Christiaens), Man on Ground (2011, Omotoso), One Way, a Tuareg Journey (2010, Caramaschi), A Trip to Algiers (2010, Bahloul).

I'll return with individual highlights as necessary; I know we've already covered a number of these films here on S&A, so some of them should be immediately familiar.

In the meantime, all you New Yorkers, mark your calendars.
