I have discovered a wonderful new blog on Africa for those of you interested in keeping up with the latest developments taking place in cinema there. African Screens' Don Omope describes it below.


Don Omope

African Screens is an original reference to the African film industry; it is a pan-African magazine aimed at creating a forum for debating the successes, challenges and aspirations of African filmmakers.

This monthly online publication is aimed at everyone with a keen interest in African films and the wider industry.

Through in-depth discussions with influential players in the African movie world, as well as film fans, we fill a gap in the market for a rich discourse that brings together a plurality of views, contextualizing African films.

Africa is a continent with diverse people and cultures, and with this comes many stories yet to be told; African Screens celebrates the works of filmmakers by honouring their effort in promoting a better understanding of everyday life and culture across Africa.

With the use of articles, video interviews, photography as well as great design, African Screens brings a different approach to experiencing the African film industry online.

Every month we shall take you on a tour of a plethora of film experiences from the big budget South African films, the vibrant and unique Nollywood films in Nigeria, to the Art house films popular in French speaking Africa; as well as films made in lesser known industries and Africans in Diaspora. We shall also bring you commentaries, tutorials, photo exhibitions and a selection of films recommended by our editors.

Donald Dewale Omope is a BBC trained & NUJ accredited Multimedia journalist with experience producing films and documentaries for television and online broadcasting. Don worked as a researcher/AP for Sir David Frost at Aljazeera News, producing current affairs stories from across Africa, before moving on to work as a video journalist for online publications and television. He graduated with a degree in television production from Westminster University, and was awarded the AHRC scholarship to pursue a Masters degree in online broadcast journalism at Goldsmith College. Don is also an avid photographer, working with the award-wining composer Shirley Thompson, former president of the Czech Republic, Pavel Havel, and the Mobo award-wining musician Nneka to name a few. Don is a member of the Royal African Society, the International Relation think tank Chatham House, the Institute of Contemporary Arts as well as numerous film networks across Africa.
