This summit serves as a platform for stakeholders in the cinema industry value chain, particularly in Africa, to engage in discussions about challenges and explore opportunities in the African cinema sector.

Under the patronage of H.E President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, the National Film Authority of Ghana, in collaboration with Silverbird Cinemas, announced this year’s edition.

The event is scheduled to take place from October 7-10 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.

Last year, the inaugural Africa Cinema Summit brought together representatives from 20 African countries to discuss the cinema landscape on the continent and tailor opportunities to fit the unique characteristics of each region.

The 2023 edition was a success, as acknowledged by President Akufo-Addo, and this year’s edition aims to build on that progress by promoting collaboration, innovation, and sustainable growth in the African cinema industry.
