A NOMADIC AND CREATIVE INTERNATIONAL EVENT
16 days to reflect about the films and digital creations of Africa and its diaspora
Supported by Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche, filmmaker, and Berni Goldblat, filmmaker, producer and president of the “Il faut sauver le Ciné Guimbi!” non-profit organization
THEME : A<F<R<O<T<O<P<I<A
For this 5th anniversary edition, the Festival des Nouveaux Cinémas Documentaires (FNCD) questions the stakes and experiences of Africa as well as those in its diaspora throughout the world, and proposes a wide selection of films, videos, radio creations, a round table, and numerous conferences and partnerships.
It’s a plural and interconnected “Africa-World” that reveals itself, far from the usual representations and sometimes clichés ; one that we offer you to discover through hybrid works that are personal, sometimes poetic at the limit of documentary film, fiction, visual anthropology and digital and contemporary art.
+ Highlights of the 2015 edition
The Festival proposes a selection of screenings and conferences of movie and digital creations from Africa and abroad (United-States, South Africa, Sudan, Burkina Faso, Morocco, France…), digital creations and art video with a special tribute to Kiripi Katembo, a short-film animated screening session for a young audience, a round table, a professional conference organized along with the CNC (National Center of Cinematography and the moving image), a Masterclass with filmmaker Dieudo Hamadi and 3 cartes blanches with the Festival de films africains Emergence in Lomé (Togo), the Festival International du Premier Film Documentaire BéninDocs in Porto Novo (Bénin) and the Rencontres du Film Court de Madagascar. In partnership with Arte Radio, some collective radio listening sessions will be proposed. The FNCD also has the pleasure to initiate this year a partnership with the Festival International Jean Rouch and the FID Marseille. Finally, Belleville en vues will integrate, as part of the FNCD, the cultural actions it carries out throughout the year. So come and discover our wide selection of films and meet the filmmakers and professionals of the movie industry as they take part of the festival! theme : A<F<R<O<T<O<P<I<A

In the movie Finding Fela, Alex Gibney tells us the story about Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, his music, his social and political engagement. In this movie, the revolutionary ideas against the Nigerian dictatorship of the 1970’s and 1980’s are depicted, as well as the influence Fela Anikulapo Kuti contributed to the democratic transition that Nigeria experienced and his promotion of pan-Africanism in the world.
