ENJOY AiM 2017 ‘FREE FEST’ IN GLASGOW
24 October 2017
Tragically the festival is coming at the end of the month and we can picture you browsing the programme and thinking you will miss on the fun? Don't worry we thought of everything with 16 free events taking place in Glasgow next week!
AFRICA’S LOST CLASSICS
Our symposium on Saturday 28 is the best opportunity to dive into the archives of African cinema (and world film archives more widely) and follow up with Mambéty’s exciting Badou Boy. Don’t miss London hip-hop scene portrait Rage and feminist bombshell Flame.

LET’S SHAKE IT!
Are you feeling the beats of our African party? We think after all of that sitting in dark rooms, you might need to shake that booty to keep in shape and we have thought of everything with our African Dance Workshop and Reconfigured Rhythms Club Night. Granted, the club night is not a free event but you can pop in just to watch the film for free (if you can resist joining the afterparty…)
