The Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!! Film Festival was created in 2011 to stimulate discourse on issues and experiences that are rooted in the African experience.

In this way, African stories will also be consumed by those who live them. The film festival grew out of the film programme of The Life House Lagos, a virtual cultural centre.

Through an annual festival held in Lagos, Nigeria, Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!! shares a diverse range of African and independent cinema including documentary, feature and animation, supporting the work of emerging African film makers.

In addition to screenings the Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!! Film Festival hosts a variety of workshops, seminars and talks that offer learning opportunities for film makers and consumers.
