The curtains of Góngora Theatre were raised on the 11th for one of the most important platforms in Europe showcasing cinema of Africa and the Middle East. Over six hundred people gathered together at 8.30 pm to join the beginning of the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the African Film Festival of Cordoba. The ceremony included the screening of the making of the FCAT poster, in the presence of its artist, the young Sudanese Dar Al Naim Mubarak-Carmona, the interpretation of the Malagasy musician, Kilema, the awards for the winners of the children’s drawing competition and the screening of the African masterpiece, La vie sur terre (Life of Earth, 1998) by one of the fathers of African cinemas, Abderrahmane Sissako. The ceremony was presented by acclaimed journalist Marta Jiménez, a Córdoba native. After a friendly chat with the director of the festival, Mane Cisneros, Marta Jiménez and the Delegate Comptroller for Citizen Participation of the Council of Cordoba, Blanca Córdoba, invited Dar Al Naim Mubarak-Carmona on stage for the presentation of the awards to the winning children. The artist, originally from Khartoum (Sudan), but with a multicultural professional and personal career, has been responsible for the creation of the image of the poster of the festival, filmed by Julio Castaño, from Yunaki Films, and whose Director of Photography has been the graphic designer of the FCAT, José Wela. Dar Al Naim joked about the ‘African hot weather’ at the terrace where she painted the poster at Cordoba, implying how similar these two lands are.
