This year’s Festival focuses on Sisters in African Cinema to celebrate the increasingly important roles women play in African cinema both on-screen and behind the camera. It wants to present the current filmmaking exploits of African women and to pit Euro-centric perceptions of women in Africa against the reality seen through the eyes of African women.

“Ayanda” narrates the story of a young woman struggling to save her late father’s car repair shop while also struggling to keep his legacy alive.
