The Sembene Film & Arts Festival formed in 2009 to celebrate the life and honor the legacy of Senegalese filmmaker Ousmane Sembène. Ousmane Sembène is considered the ‘Father of African Cinema’ and one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century. Sembène – the Film & Arts Festival is the first film festival ever launched in honor of the Ousmane Sembène and it’s the first film festival in the region dedicated to showcasing films by, about and from the African Diaspora.
Festival organizers see the festival as a vehicle to speak to the critical issues facing people of African descent – indeed, the world community. Check out the February line-up. Visit: http://www.sembenefilmfestival.org/
