The African Studies Association is offering a competition for an outstanding film, whether fiction or documentary, made in the preceding two calendar years (2017, 2018) by an African filmmaker. They are interested in innovative, probing, work that helps audiences think about social, political, economic, and cultural questions pertinent to the lives of Africans and dynamics on the African continent.

  4. Filmmakers can submit nominations at any stage in their career.
  5. Films must be feature-length and with English subtitles.
  6. Documentary or fiction (with an understanding that these distinctions are increasingly traversed in much film work today) are accepted.
  7. Films should be directed to an audience that contains both specialists and generalists.
  8. They encourage work in less commonly used African languages as long as English subtitles are included, and will also consider works in other languages as well.
  9. Both Blu-Ray and DVD versions, or links such as Vimeo with a protected password are accepted.

Please note: By submitting a film to the prize committee for consideration, nominators are agreeing to waive any screening fees should the film be selected as a winner.
