Africa in Motion is an audience-based festival, founded in 2006 by African film researcher Lizelle Bisschoff. The main aims of the festival have been, since its inception, to introduce Scottish audiences to the brilliance of African cinema and to overcome the under-representation and marginalisation of African film in British film-going culture.
A number of African filmmakers are in attendance each year to talk to audiences about their work and the screenings are accompanied by a variety of complementary events such as discussions, masterclasses, seminars and music events.
Over the past eleven years AiM screened close to 500 African films to audiences totalling around 30,000 people.
