What our audiences are saying about us

Our 2016 festival was a huge success, thank you to everyone who came along and supported us. We love hearing from you, so please send your feedback here

  • As one of the patrons of the African film festival, I was very proud to attend the opening night at the Rialto in Newmarket last night. Awesome group of people coming together for a good project. Zodwa and I are very keen on anything that showcases our wonderful continent in a way other than the tragedy and despair that are always associated with Africa. Amongst the heartbreak are wonderful people doing great things and we have to help focus on getting investment and business up and working with the African continent xxx

  • What a wonderful premier event we had last night at the Rialto in Newmarket with the compelling and surprising film The Forgotten Kingdom. This African Film Festival deserves all the support it can get. What a window on a world we have in this festival!

  • The level of work, commitment and dedication shown by the Trust organizers to host this event at the Rialto, Newmarket is amazing and inspiring. The relationships the Trust had established and now maintained in holding an immensely successful event were wholeheartedly appreciated by the large crowds in attendance at the film showings and the genuinely enthusiastic acclaim received by the Trust…..
