Theme: Building Bridges: Africa Through the Eye of the Video Camera

The African Video Film Art Festival took place between 28th and 31st of October, 2007 at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.  It brought together African film practitioners, audiences, tourists and others from many countries in Africa, Britain and the United States of America. Selected African Video Films were screened, giving audiences the opportunity to have a glimpse of the cultures that informed the production of such films. The festival built bridges of understanding and cooperation between the different countries that were represented at the festival. It also created awareness about what Africans are doing to promote their art and culture and also how African video artists are reflecting and affecting their societies through their art.


Film Shows and Plenary Sessions took place at the Oduduwa Hall, one of the most beautiful theatres in the world. Indeed, Obafemi Awolowo University has the most beautiful University campus in Africa. Participants gave themselves an aesthetic treat as they attended the African Video Film Arts Festival
