As noted in previous FESPACO posts, since we're not physically there to capture it all firsthand, we're trying to bring as much of the festival to you, sifting through other reports (there really haven't been that many thus far, and even fewer in English) as well as bits and pieces from social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

FESPACO

As noted in previous FESPACO posts, since we're not physically there to capture it all firsthand, we're trying to bring as much of the festival to you, sifting through other reports (there really haven't been that many thus far, and even fewer in English) as well as bits and pieces from social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

You'll have some reprieve from reading lengthy interviews, and keynote speeches in this post, which contains photos from the festival, that I discovered on the UK Guardian's website, and thought were worth sharing, if only to give you something visual and current from the festival.

Titled The Pan-African film and television festival – in pictures, I've embedded 5 of them within this post (for the rest go HERE):
