Cambridge African Film Festival Fri, 2009-11-20 02:00

The Cambridge African Film Festival (CAFF) is the oldest annual African film festival in the UK, and a society of the University of Cambridge. It was initiated in May 2002 by a small group of graduate students at the University of Cambridge as a way of screening the best contemporary African films, increasing knowledge and awareness of African and black culture in the UK. In this podcast, Dr Lindiwe Dovey, Lecturer in African Film at SOAS, gives a detailed description of the festival and previews some of the most important films showing in the 2009 edition.
