Watch Africa (Wales African Film Festival) - Intern - £300 (a month) - 10 hours a week - Fixed Term - Cardiff.

Closing Date: 1 June 2018

The Wales-Africa Film Club is an informal community of people interested in watching, exploring and getting involved in African film. The club which is part of Watch-Africa will reach out to undeserved areas for cultural/foreign screenings, especially BAME communities. It will allow African films to reach these communities outside the core festival.

It will overcome barriers to engagement by bringing African film to BAME communities in venues and settings familiar to them, rather than requiring them to visit venues that are unfamiliar. It will foster engagement among BAME communities by providing opportunities to discover African film, to connect with developments in film on the continent, to become active participants and grow skills and confidence.

The Wales Africa Film Club will complement the Watch Africa Film Festival with informal and BAME centred/led opportunities to explore and become involved in film, thereby creating spaces to expand and sustain existing and core festival audiences.
