Zuecca Projects is proud to present the first edition of the African Film Festival -ORIGINS” in Venice, to align with the 74th Venice International Film Festival. The festival will be hosted at Multisala Astra on the Lido di Venezia (Venice Lido), from September 1st to 5th, 2017.

The African Film Festival is an elaborate project which starts this year through the participation and collaboration with some of the Official African National Pavilions participating in the 2017 Venice Art Biennale and leading figures and institutions of African Cinema industry.

The pavilions of Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria and Zimbabwe, with the participation of South African Creative Director Lee-Ann Orton, present a selection of films that depict their countries today and their cultural identities.


The initiative aims to offer an introspection of the African continent through the eyes of artists, curators and professionals representing their own countries. The Festival offers a selection of movies of different sizes, ranging from cinema d'essai to documentary, made by Masters and Young Interpreters.

An overview that allows us to see different worlds and cultures that we must increasingly know to become all true global citizens.
