How we Work

About Us

Founded in 1969, FEPACI has from its inception been the continental voice of filmmakers from various regions of Africa and the Diaspora, working with its affiliate national bodies and membership to leverage policies and actions, programmes and projects for the development and enhancement of an enabling environment and infrastructure for all dimensions of filmmaking and the audiovisual media in Africa by Africans.

FEPACI has worked tirelessly over the years towards collaborating with and persuading African governments and continental organizations including the African Union to recognize the importance of cinema and the audio visual industries in the social, economic and cultural education of our populations and to adopt cinema policies that stimulate the development of cinema in respective countries, regionally as well as continentally. The Federation was granted observer status by the African Union.
