The 2012 installment of the Afrika Eye Film Festival in Bristol, UK, launches on Friday, November 9th, and will include in its lineup of film screenings, talks, and more, a celebration of 50 years of Jamaican independence.

The opening night film will be the sensational new film from Senegalese director Moussa Touré, La Pirogue.

As always, I'll return to highlight any noteworthy films we have yet to cover.
