Time Out says

Back for the ninth year, and here to give London’s cinema scene a much-needed boost, is Film Africa: the capital’s biggest celebration of African and African diaspora film. Mixing feature-length premieres, shorts and documentaries, the fest will show 46 films from 14 African countries in socially-distanced screenings at BFI Southbank and Rich Mix, and, for the first time, via BFI Player (yes, that means you can watch exclusive films from the sofa in your PJs). Look out for the European premiere of award-winning Nigerian director Akin Omotoso’s ‘The Ghost and the House of Truth’ starring British actor Susan Wokoma, and the UK premiere of ‘Kenyan, Christian, Queer’ exploring the the first LGBTQ+ church in Nairobi. 

Screenings take place at BFI Southbank and Rich Mix. Or, watch online via BFI Player.
