About the 1-Day Film Screening
Welcome to the annual 1-Day Film Screening, an exciting outdoor community event held on the eve of Canada Day in the vibrant neighborhood of Sage Creek. Organized by the African Movie Festival in Manitoba (AM-FM), this event aims to commemorate the diversity and cultural richness within our community during the celebration of Canada Day.
Immerse yourself in the captivating world of African cinema as we showcase a curated selection of films from across the continent. From thought-provoking dramas to exhilarating comedies, these films provide a glimpse into the vibrant storytelling and unique perspectives of African filmmakers.
But the 1-Day Film Screening is more than just a cinematic experience. It’s a lively celebration of African culture, complete with bouncy castles for the little ones, mesmerizing music that will make you groove, tantalizing food to indulge your taste buds, and dynamic dance performances that will leave you awestruck.
AM-FM, hosted by Manitoba African Film Festival Inc., is a non-profit organization based in Winnipeg, Canada. Our mission is to promote African cinema and foster cultural exchange by showcasing films that captivate, educate, and entertain audiences of all backgrounds. Through our events, we strive to create a platform where diverse voices and stories can be celebrated and appreciated.
