Announcing  the fourth edition of  Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival. It will also be its longest-running edition yet, kicking off on Friday, September 26 and ending-with a bang-on Nigeria’s Independence Day.

The Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival 2014, which spills into the October 1st holiday, is an opportunity to relax and recover something about African histories. With films like Oya, the Rise of the Orisha (2014), Africa’s first superhero movie named for the Yoruba warrior goddess and The Supreme Price (2014), a documentary on Nigeria’s pro-democracy movement, the audience is encouraged to reconsider our past with new eyes.

Curated around the theme LEGACY, Nigeria’s only festival dedicated to independent African film boasts, this year alone, more than 30 movies from over 20 countries. They will all be screened at the Federal Palace Hotel, an establishment steeped in a history as old as independent Nigeria itself.

This edition also stands out for its emphasis on television and the role it has played documenting our journey. Meanwhile, it stays true to the festival’s tradition by including free film workshops, hosting a colorful market of African crafts and gift items, live music, and a bevy of thrilling performances.

October 1 (2014), Kunle Afolayan’s latest opus set at a time when the country was still negotiating what independence from British rule would look like, will be signing off the festival week on a very high note.

Ultimately, reliving pivotal moments in history will help us chart a better course for our future.
