Compiled by our friends at Africa Is A Country... here's the intro:

2011 was a good year for African cinema. In various cinema seats and at home, I’ve been intrigued and moved, horrified and sickened, surprised and hugely entertained by a group of industries that together we call ‘African cinema’ — a sign that what can be expected is anything but stereotypical. In the list below, I’ve chosen films that have expanded what we might think of as ‘African cinema’. Some short films, some documentary, some fiction, some a strange mix of them all.

I won't spoil any of it for you (although the image at the top of this post should give one of the titles away), so check out the full list of 10 films (most you should recognize, as we've covered them on S&A) HERE.

    I saw VIVA RIVA! and A SCREAMING MAN, two of the best movies of 2011, in my opinion. I'll check out PUMZI on netflix. In the words of the great Nneka, "Viva Africa!".
