Welcome to the 2nd
Helsinki African Film Festival
Following the success of the first HAFF, we are delighted to welcome you to yet another program of entertaining and thought-provoking films from Africa!
This year’s festival theme is Women’s Voices and Visions, focusing on African women as directors, producers or leading actors. The program is diverse in terms of genre, subject matter and the rich humanity of the continent. These inspiring films will definitely tickle your senses and your intellect, whether you happen to be a male or female fan of quality films. African women filmmakers are transforming what has largely been a male domain, and they are doing it with a sense of passion, humour and political awareness that HAFF is proud to bring to Finland.
HAFF now has a national dimension. A selection of films from the festival will be screened at regional film centers around Finland. This year we will also show four films in Kiasma in collaboration with the ARS11 exhibition.
Tickets will be available from this website starting in March, when the full festival program is revealed. Last year tickets sold out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you in May!
