About the conference

This conference will deal with the relations between African cinema and its diasporas. African cinema is well appreciated in Quebec thanks to the festival Vues d’Afrique. Many Quebec movie makers are interested in African issues. Movies like Les États-Unis d’Afrique (which will be shown during the conference) or Rebelle show that the ties between the two Francophone zones grow stronger and stronger.

This event is free and open to the public.
